    Why Work-Life Balance is a Lie
    Why Work-Life Balance is a LieHave you ever stopped to examine what it really means to live a balanced life?  Think about it – we say that we would like “work-life balance”, but how much thought have we put into what this really means?Like many of you who are reading this right...

    Yes, exactly! Had a conversation about this yesterday. Some people are now calling it "Work-Life Blend". What do you call it?
    Carla Taylor
    20/04/2017 #22 Carla Taylor
    Love this! I was having exactly this same conversation yesterday. Balance is s static point, not a place to live.

    The balance is love your work, love your life. Hate your work, hate your life.

    Very true. It's another HR-inspired salesjob, going back years, imposed on people by well-meaning yet self-righteous pseudo-experts. I recall serving on a work-life balance advisory committee to senior management 15 years ago. It was in Canada's federal government. In addition to bureaucrats like myself, we had several external highly respected individuals who had spent a lot of time doing research on the topic.

    When I looked back years later (I retired in 2010), I realized that work-life balance is highly personal and that employees need to empower themselves to set their own priorities in life and at work. Of particular interest is that top management was never committed to the initiative. In the public sector, advancement comes through serving upwards to power. Service to citizens and taxpayers is farther down the priority scale. What this means is that those seeking a steady rise upwards must re-focus their priorities. I saw plenty of senior staff and executives either burn out or be forced to take time off work to heal themselves.

    But these were personal decisions when it came to working 80 hours a week, ignoring your health, family, etc.

    The relationship between work and life outside organizational walls is, in effect, a continuum.

    Welcome @Tyrone Matheson. But,why you start your posts with a juggling act?.As Einstein said "You have to learn the rules of the game,and then you have to play it better than anyone else." The work-family balance is a juggling act so, we have to understand the rules of juggling before playing it .Some people prioritize their schedule and others schedule their priorities.In reality we are juggling many balls not only work and family,if any ball doesn't have its own track they can't be kept on the air and you will finish up with no ball in the hand as all balls will fall in your head.Learn to watch the balls to have control of them ,create a separate path for each of them and try to enjoy the beauty of the game.It's also very insecure trying to influence something you are not in full control of.We need help to focus and succeed in keeping that balance .Family and work are also like two rabbits,just like juggling balls in the air to be successful every ball should have a specific path,so too, channel your rabbits in separate tracks and start hunting the one you feel more pleased with.This's the real balance.Goethe once quoted"things which matter most should never be at the mercy of things which matter least."

    @Tyrone Matheson as an ardent believer in work-life integration I fully endorse your perspective on balance and the futile nature of pursuit.
    Harvey Lloyd
    17/12/2016 #12 Harvey Lloyd
    Your discussion here is very intriguing. Instead of balance we counter balance based on priorities. If i could add maybe another perspective that excludes both counter balance and work-life balance. We exist within a sphere of humans. We chose family, profession and core beliefs. Instead of balance we can approach our lives from the perspective of existence. Work is part of life as is family/personal development. We need food, and relationships. It is how we are designed.

    I don't care for the work-life balance perspective. I sense that most who bring this point up are suffering a form of a unsatisfied existence feedback loop. Either work or life. I prefer to see life as a single world that we share journeys with folks for different reasons. Sometimes one draws away from the other in the ebb and flow of our day to day lives. This is natural.

    This perspective allows for storms in any part of our life and most importantly relieves us of the guilt component while enduring the storm. I am not lacking in any area but rather managing the storms that naturally occur. When your team, family or social group grasp this concept, they flow into your areas that are not within your storm management viewpoint currently and pick up what is needed. You emerge from the storm with a sense of presence not guilt.

    Balance is something that has to be managed. I would rather be present within the situation not balancing it.

    Great thoughts.

    nice insight @Tyrone Matheson! but, i guess, balance is exactly what we tend to prioritize without harming our design of life we crave for to maintain a harmonious network. though the metaphor you resorted to is intriguing, yet, human beings are unlike other creatures, who only possess to make a time management, though all creatures are gifted with 24 hours, and they exploit most out of it, enabling to usher the progress of the civilization, and it is absolutely truth, that we achieved a lot in terms of serving humanity too! however, nice post. enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    Tyrone, welcome to beBee
    I've contemplated this subject and have some thoughts. I had a conversation this week about the millennial generation entering the work-force and how they are demanding balance. IMHO they aren't willing to put in long hours, they insist on an 8-5 day, and missing lunch isn't an option. They aren't willing to settle for entry-level salaries when they are in debt for education.
    This is my theory;
    It's our 'fault'. Our children have watched and listened as we sacrificed family/play time and taught them that that is what it took to 'get ahead'.
    They didn't buy into the concept and are not willing to make those sacrifices on the off chance that they will rise to the top. They have sacrificed enough through time and memories growing up. They recognize there are a limited number of positions in the C-Suite and so they are going to 'take' their due now and not opt for a future payoff. Too often in their parent's case, the payoff never came. They now stand by and watch as their parent's generation is forced out of the workforce for being 'obsolete' and old school. They don't believe in the future payoff and their parents stand as examples as to why the should take their due now because you're going to get screwed in the future.
    We have taught our children a powerful lesson; demand that balance from the start, don't trust leadership, don't love the company because they don't love you, and loyalty is for saps.
    They see themselves as one day having roles reversed as their parents come to depend on them after Wall Street destroyed many retirement programs, insurance companies will once again be allowed to drop them from coverage and the government wipes out Social Security. and Medicare Everything their parents worked for is slowly slipped from their grasp. Yes, it's our fault; what we preached did not stand up under our children's scrutiny as the eventual reality.
    Just this 'staff member's' opinion. Three cheers for the millennials!

    Welcome to beBee,@Tyrone Matheson! The metaphor of dance captures much of the give and take between live domains. "To live with purpose is to live governed by priority whereby you gracefully and skillfully dance the counterbalance dance."

    17/12/2016 #5 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
    @Tyrone Matheson- I loved this post and therefore followed you, liked it, shared it and now commenting on it. The background image is well-chosen and it reflects complex systems with many instabilities. Complex systems are open systems and, unlike closed systems that eventually end up in chaos, they thrive for instability and NOT balance. This way they may self-organize into a new self-sustaining structure til they reach anew instability.
    You remind me of a presentation that I wrote on complexity thought. Instead of the balls in your image, I used tree leaves as chaotic pendulums (in reality they are). The music and rhyme we get from them when trees blow the leaves as they (leaves) self-organize to get out of their instability.
    I like mind-challenging buzzes and this one surely is.
    John Rylance
    17/12/2016 #4 John Rylance
    I'm not sure it's a lie, more something that rather than being static is ever changing. Constantly we have to alter our focus between the two, favouring first one then the other. What we must avoid is the "rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic" scenario. The bottom line is whatever the balance is, we must feel we are in control.

    Welcome to beBee, Tyrone. I really enjoyed this post. It is both well written and thought provoking. That, in my mind, is a formula for success. Our purpose is often not clear to us, but I would venture to say that it ends up being the one thing you are somehow drawn to doing and are most comfortable in, regardless of how you make your living. I seem to always be teaching people and advising people about things, so I suspect that is who I am meant to be. Keep buzzing, Tyrone!

On the same note regarding hard working and taking a break, I was also told some time ago by a mentor I respect tremendously: "There is a difference between hard and stupid. Be smart and take a break." That single advice resonated and put things back into the proper perspective.

    Great post from Liz Ryan. Love your comment Deb Helfrich "it is to see where an organization has pain, and show how you observed the issue, have options to solve the pain, and are the perfect person to implement those solutions" That is the secret sauce. Thanks for sharing.

    #8 Your comment is so encouraging - thanks @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. I can see meaning in all that has transpired. I like the term you used - "heart and soul safe". I think our societies are crying are desperate for this reality - even if they aren't aware of it yet!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    07/03/2017 #8 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #6 #7 You know, @Steve Brady - there is a great cross-pollination in the "pain points" approach that Liz recommends - which is rather than apply to jobs like sheep in a flock; it is to see where an organization has pain, and show how you observed the issue, have options to solve the pain, and are the perfect person to implement those solutions.

    For way too many people, their careers are some of the most traumatic environs of their life - especially when it comes to justice and fairness.

    And it just doesn't have to be that way. We humans created the rules of work so far. There is nothing inherent in selling widgets that requires people to check their souls at the door. Not even the much maligned assembly line or AI automation HAS to create trauma for individuals.

    Humans can redesign work so that it is heart and soul safe. Collaboration and community focused, rather than competition and scarcity driven.

    Your journey and work story are probably the exact sort of narrative that can help shift how we view our work organizations for the betterment of all involved.

    #1 I agree @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Hope you are well btw. We haven't crossed paths in a while. I had to pull back from my Social Media adventures for a while.

    @Javier 🐝 beBee and @Liz Ryan I'm going to confess up front that I am a compulsive book buyer. Just ask my wife! To my credit though, I do read 90% of them.
    In this case @Javier 🐝 beBee you had me hooked as soon as I saw the graphic. Thank you for sharing Liz Ryan's LI post here on beBee. I am between "career phases" at present. I'm off work at present to focus on recovering through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When I had to stop work, I was distraught and was overwhelmed with thoughts and feelings akin to "my working life is over" and also a deep grief at having to leave a job I loved. I realize now. however, that all is not wasted. I have time to focus on healing, and also a fantastic opportunity to align my career, and use the skill set I've developed over 45 years to focus my career on Justice reform that is healing and restorative, and that at it's deepest level begins in the hearts and minds of people and in a larger context the cultures in which they live. Anyway....I purchased an e-copy of Liz's book. If my wife gets upset, can I say that you made me do it @Javier 🐝 beBee? Or is that going too far?

    Many thanks for sharing your important insights, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman @debasish majumder @Andrew Books. One thing's for sure: I had a lot more energy in my early 20s (lol). However, it really comes down to motivation and how badly one wants to achieve the goal they set, regardless of how far away it may appear at first.
    As a Gen Xer, I think it's incumbent to mentor Millennials and their younger demographic cohort, Gen Z -- similar to how older generations mentored us. Thank you Boomers and WWII generation. (aka "The Greatest Generation" per journalist Tom Brokaw's book). The results of mentoring someone may indeed be game changing for those being mentored and also a fulfilling for the mentors. It's always nice to give something back.

    I love this story @David B. Grinberg. Agree, hard work and determination do pay off. I would have never made it as a Respiratory Technician (no college), OJT- had it not been for certain mentors who taught me so much, things I never forgot and also encouraged the human side to surface when needed because it's such a stressful job. That job set the stage for many things in my life. Thanks for sharing your story, these stories inspire.

    I have had a few mentors throughout my career. I must say I learned a lot from them and carry their teachings with me today. Much of what I learned was specific to the insurance industry, however, there was also learning of a more personal nature. For example, how to do what I want to do with me. I was my biggest problem after my husband passed away.

    So I buried myself in my work and listened intently to what was taught, This was my way of blotting out depressing thoughts. One of my mentors was one of my managers. I learned a lot from her and we went through some trying times when the portion of the company we worked for was bought out. She hired me, mentored me, promoted me and was the manager that performed my interview when I retired.

    I love your story, David, and I agree mentoring is a great tool in helping others learn.

    We all get a little "luck and timing," @David B. Grinberg. It's up to us to make the most of both. As the years wear on, though, luck and timing aren't nearly as important as experience. You can rely on the experience, but luck and timing tend to fade, and there comes a time when coincidences are few and far between. Experiences keeps you going, especially in writing. As long as you can write, you've got something. Thanks for the post.

    #11 I think you're spot on with your ten point plan, David. Fifteen years ago I met the love of my life, and she has been my greatest mentor. I've had many, but she has been my anchor to all of the others. I'm a young fifty-five year old who recently obtained his dream of receiving a college degree. I was a terrible student in high school, whose only concern was to be done with sitting in a chair staring at a chalkboard. In my forties my wife saw my desire to learn and suggested I go to college and pursue my dream. At forty seven I enrolled in college and excelled to the top of my class obtaining a BA in sociology. Persistence, perseverance, and patience were my three P's. My wife taught me that anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

    We probably wouldn't agree on politics, David. But I respect your accomplishments, writing skills, and tenacity. It's never too late to try something new, and your ten point plan is an awesome roadmap to get there. Well done.

    Good people always come.along. i wasnt lucky to spend much working time under a mentor who shifted to Honeywell. She was my best boss and the only one to give me an experience letter, references and the only one who is doing great in life. Others just bombed despite amazing project successes.
    But now, before the big leap in my profession amazingly she is back to guide me , well on the phone for now but things work out beautifully.

    Having a mentor certainly saves a lot of timw and effort.

    Awesome stories @David B. Grinberg! I've had several great mentors over the years in my various careers. One of my first mentors is Dr Kim Bishop whilst I was studying at Kings College. Her humour, work ethic and kindness were truly inspirational. I used the only in-mail LinkedIn allowed me and got in touch last year. She's still amazing! One of my more recent mentors is a chap called Bob Percival (Uncle Bob) who is 82! His energy and boundless enthusiasm for life are really inspiring. Believe it or not his father knew my father in the early 50's in Hoylake. Uncle Bob's father ran the swimming club and my father was one of the top swimmers there and a lifeguard!

Find something you enjoy doing, and share it with others - maybe my early interest in ham radio influenced this on me, it is traditional in ham radio for experienced "old timers" of any age - to help people. The fancy name for this is "mentoring."

I've come to the point in my life where I can no longer tolerate negative, depressing, unsupportive people around me, so I have systematically eliminated them from my life. Thanks for this post. I enjoyed reading it.

    I agree, @Bob McIntosh, it's easy to slip into negativity if it's all around you. I visited a friend who's establishing a B&B in a small town. Everywhere was hustle and bustle, yet I found out she'd had a tough year. Despite that, she up, confident, making lots of plans. It's always heartening when you see that. I've always said, it isn't about brains or connections or luck. More than anything, it's resilience.

    Excellent post and good to see you here, @Bob McIntosh . When I went through "job transition" I tried to keep away from all the negative and bitter people I stated to meet. Negativity is so contagious, it only takes one person to kill an entire day or week or month. By avoiding those people and finding better people to hang around with - made the days and weeks much more productive.
