Discussion on: Achieving Great Work-Life Balance

Hi, what a nice post! I prefer "work-life integration" to "work-life balance" since it implies a more harmonious relationship between work and personal life. On the other hand, the work-life balance appears to entail a lot of effort for little reward, which does not sound appealing.

Of course, this is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and the best place to begin is by asking yourself, "what would be the ideal week for you?". You'll have a lot of trial and error, and that's okay. See it as a learning experience. Discover the difference between your ideal week and what you can realistically do in one week—and learn from it.
