Myth of Work-Life Balance

The very phrase “work/life balance” suggests that not only is there not enough of us to go around, but that we must compromise something important in one domain in order to have enough of ourselves to give somewhere else. And yet, this assumption goes against everything we intuitively know about creating powerfully in the world—that it’s about bursts of intensity, giving unconditionally, and experiencing a sense that in the moment there’s no place we should be other than where we find ourselves right now.
