In our hyper-connected working world, work-life balance is crucial to employee engagement and career development. The term “work-life balance” was first used in the U.K. in the 1970s and later used in the U.S. in the 1980s. When work takes up too much of your time and effort, you’re more likely to experience burnout. On September 26, 2018, Adam Grant tweeted the following in his Wednesday Wisdom:
Work-life balance sets an unrealistic expectation of keeping different roles in steady equilibrium. Instead, strive for work-life rhythm. Each week has a repeating pattern of beats—job, family, friends, health, hobbies—that vary in accent and duration.
Perhaps, like me, you’ve also heard the term work-life integration and work-life blend. Like Jeff Bezos, I tend to prefer the term work-life harmony.
