Are you with me? Do you love what you do too? Great, let's speak out about it, let's tell the truth that work-life balance is for the bored, the disenchanted, the stuck. Those of us who love what we work on are rocking this work-life mix!
If we're not buying the crap that we need some kind of balance, what do we need to do instead? It's easy - we work at something we live for! We work at something that when we get up in the morning we can't wait to do it, something that we think about day and night, something we get excited about.
I'm not talking about everyone packing in their job. That's not going to help, as many people will then end up unhappy as they discover that being an entrepreneur doesn't suit them. No, what I'm talking about is having a part of your day be about that thing you HAVE to do. It might be your hobby, it might be some community service you provide, or maybe it's running a business alongside another job. And you know, it could be the job you do for your employer - if you love it, that's fabulous!
Let's face it, when we're passionate about something we don't notice any imbalance, even if we need to work late into the night, even if we need to dedicate more than half our weekend to it. When we're passionate about something it's easy, there's a flow, it all just feels right, right? So why create a balance around that, when working on our passion IS our balance?
Struggling to find your passion right now? Please, I implore you, don't just walk out of the day job. Work with a coach to guide you into your passion. I coach many people who are at different stages on the journey of discovery. Some are already running their own business and discover that they're just not suited to be self-employed. Others are ready to leap from their job into a dream business they are passionate to make work, and need guidance to get there.
