In this 13 minute video from TEDxSydney, Nigel Marsh addresses the core issues that hinder this popular topic:
“Stop looking outside, it’s up to us as individuals to take control and responsibility for the type of lives we want to lead. If you don’t design your life, someone else WILL design it for you and you may just not like their idea of balance.”
Thought provoking for you as an employer but also for your employees.
If you, your staff, your clients and their staff are inspired by this, how can you help to facilitate it better?
Perhaps you could find new ways to invest in all of these assets to improve the levels of enjoyment, balance, and value creation NOW and not just for when you retire.
There is a middle way.
