Work-life balance has been on the agenda in the media, organisations and academia for a considerable time now. I have always seen the debate as limited because it is a myth that we have two lives – work and life. We only have one life even if we choose to apportion our time between what we call work and what we call non-work.
I recently had the opportunity to interview with an ex executive who, after climbing the corporate ladder found, in his particular situation, that the ladder was up against the wrong building. He provides a refreshing look at the whole debate on work-life balance and how we truly create our lives with no separation of what we consider work and life to be. He really does offer us some new food for thought on this: http://socialmythbuster.com/dispelling-the-myth-of-work-life-balance-stephen-phillips/536/
