Tired of hearing a bunch of unhelpful lip-service about Work/Life Balance? You’ll like this short TED Talk!

The nut:

Creating balance does not require upheaval, just the way that crash diets are not a good plan for long-term weight loss. It is all about being clear around your priorities in each of the life-roles you play and making small, well thought out investments in each of them.

Take a long-term approach just as you might with investing. You may never have a perfect day, where every task or priority has its allotted time and proportions. Find your “balance” between that and the “I’ll have a life when I retire” mentality. Flexibility, commitment, and creativity are essential.
