People often think life is an either/or.
Either you sacrifice yourself at work to create the career you want … and your personal life struggles.
Or you give up your career to have the family you want.
While those are indeed two options, they aren’t the only options.
Doing good work does NOT mean you can’t enjoy your personal life.
And it’s not about life balance.
We aren’t a pie chart as there’s an ebb and flow to life.
Sometimes there are big projects that demand more time and energy.
Sometimes there are family health issues that need to be the priority.
It’s like rafting down the river and knowing you can get stuck on a rock.
Then you must work with your other rafters to get unstuck … until the next rock or obstacle.
As you raft down the river there are calm times, sometimes so calm you must paddle to keep moving. These calm times can become frustrating. Much like life.
There are fun times that you can laugh about and enjoy.
And there are hair raising times when you go through a rapid.
As well as those frustrating times when you get stuck on a rock.
And let’s not forget those exhilarating times when you go through challenging parts of the river and come out the other side.
Rafting is much like the ebb and flow of your professional + personal life.
On the river you don’t get to choose to only raft on the calm parts or only go on the rapids.
They are two parts of the journey on the river along with many other experiences.
And just like being on the river is not an either/or, but a collection of experiences … so is your professional + personal life.
It’s not an either/or.
Instead it’s about you designing the life you want based on your values + priorities.
Often people limit themselves because they believe there must be so much personal sacrifice.
This is not the case.
You can have a successful career and also have loving + connected relationships.
It’s can be done when you live your life on your terms.
Friend, it’s about having boundaries based on your values + priorities.
It’s about being effective at work because you are focused.
So that when it’s time to go home … you are fully present + able to enjoy your time as you connect with those you love.
You can have both a good professional career doing work you love + enjoy your personal life.
