Warning: Your Belief in The So-Called “Work-Life Balance” Is Actually Ruining Your Life

Work-life balance. Financial freedom. Self-help. Motivation. Lifestyle advice.

The “ten minutes” this or that. The “five steps to” this or that. The easy way. The shortcut you never knew needed.

Building a life you’re proud of.

Somehow managing to come up with more than twenty four hours in a day, so you get to do all the things you want to do. Yay!

There are an awful lot of gurus out there telling you that life can be easy, if only…

If only it weren’t hard.

Life is pain.

Can we move on now?

There’s no such thing as a work-life balance. Life is not a balancing act, unless you want to fall flat on your face from a great height.

After all, what’d you expect would happen if you constantly go through life as if walking on tightrope?

  1. So I am thinking of writing on the fact you actually can’t be whatever you want to be and you can’t always have whatever you set your mind on because life’s just not like that despite what we’re told. With that in mind your post was really encouraging. A dose of reality does us good at times.

  2. I was really disturbed when I entered the workplace. I was looking once again for work but also holidays. A work life balance. And people were happy to destroy your holidays. My theory is the following : life is about work life balance 1 time out of 10. The rest of the time it must really colorful !

  3. Punchy stuff you shared here, all it all makes sense. Recently, a boss in the office advised that rather than talking about work-life balance, we should be in talking about work-life in integration. Whether that’s achievable is another thing altogether.
