  • The fallacy of finding a work-life balance is that it implies we are not living when we are working. But work is where most of our time is spent! How limiting to see work as the place where we earn the money to live 'after work'. The solution may be changing the role of work in people's life: make work the place we go to grow, create workplaces that are a place of personal growth an make space and have rituals that foster this growth. This is a unique opportunity, as people look to find purpose beyond unsustainable consumption, we should aspire to get up and "go to grow", rather than "go to work". It's a great time to be thinking of the future of work and integrating its role in people's wellbeing.
