As assistants, just the words, “Work-Life Balance” can throw us into a state of panic. What is balance and how do we know we’ve achieved it? What if a work-life balance that works for someone else doesn’t work for me? Does having to make sacrifices at work or home mean I’m out of balance?
I’m on a fair number of forums and Facebook groups geared toward assistants. Frequently someone will post a concern about work-life balance. It is interesting to read the varied responses which range from sympathetic, “I feel you, I’ve been there too,” to downright judgemental, “I would never consider working a job where I’d have to work weekends.” What’s more, the different seasons in our lives will require a different work-life balance.
So, how then do we achieve a balance that works for us?
