TEDtalks : Work and Life Balance – Nigel Marsh

 

If you are not going to design your life, someone will do it for you.

Certain job and career choices are fundamentally incompatible with being meaningfully engaged on a day to day basis with a young family.

Government and corporations aren’t going to solve this issue for us.

It is up to us individuals to take control and responsibility for the type of life we want to live.

If you don’t design your life, someone else will design it for you., and you may just not like their idea of balance.

We have to be responsible for setting and enforcing the boundaries that we want in our life.

Small things matter. Being more balanced doesn’t mean dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest investment in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life.

It can transform society, because if enough people do it, we can change society’s definition of success. Away from the moronically simplistic notion that the person with the most money when he dies wins, to a more fruitful and balanced definition of what a life well-lived looks like.
