Work-life balance is dead. Here’s a better way.

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls — family, health, friends, and integrity — are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.”

— Gary Keller

From juggling to integrating

From work self to best self

“Be relentlessly insistent about bringing your best self to work — and taking it home again.

Don’t think of it as some kind of zero-sum game where anything you put into your work robs your life and anything you put into your life robs your work…

The time you spend at work can be an expression of who you are as a human being, an enourmous enrichment to your life, and a boon to your friends and family.”

Building momentum

“Sleep eight hours, exercise for forty-five minutes and have both breakfast and dinner with my fmaily….If I can manage to do those things, I can usually stay centered no matter what storms are raging around me.”
