FCP S2E10 - Is Balance Worth Trying To Achieve?
3 days ago
So many people strive for the perfect balance in their life, but will they every find it? We've talked about finding balance in many of our episodes in the past but in this one, we're discussing why it's really difficult to achieve and why you should accept the fact that life will not be perfectly balanced all the time. The Truth About Work-Life Balance If you're struggling to find the perfect work-life balance, you're not alone. Many workers find it hard to balance their jobs with their social and family life.

In many ways, the idea of achieving the perfect balance can be very flawed. Balance is often not the end goal and it can't be because while it can be influenced, it can't be controlled 100%. When people say that want more balance, they are usually craving a specific end result which is in fact not balance at all. Your end goal may be to spend more time with your family, stop working at a certain time each day, enjoy your hobbies more, and just protect your overall quality of life. These are the things you should focus on instead of trying to equally distribute your time and energy to all the various
