• The BS of "BALANCE" – Pre-event Chat

    Posted by khadijahkhatun on 2 May 2024 at 09:16

    As we eagerly anticipate diving into the topics of redefining work-life balance, unlocking joy, and achieving our D.R.E.A.M goals with Jodi Goldman, we couldn’t help but ponder over the significance of these topics in our daily lives. It’s undeniable that in today’s fast-paced world, the concept of work-life balance often feels like a distant dream, something we strive for but seldom achieve.

    So, how do we redefine this elusive balance? How do we shift our mindset to stop feeling like something always has to give? We are curious to hear your thoughts on this. Do you believe it’s possible to find harmony between our career, family, and personal life? Or do you think it’s more about prioritization and acceptance of trade-offs?

    Moreover, the idea of unlocking joy resonates deeply with us. In the midst of our busy schedules and endless to-do lists, how do we ensure that we’re not just going through the motions, but actually experiencing joy in our everyday lives? Have you discovered any strategies or practices that have helped you find joy amidst the chaos?

    And let’s not forget about the success formula. We all have dreams and aspirations, but turning them into reality can often feel daunting. What steps have you taken to make your D.R.E.A.M goals inevitable? Are there any specific strategies or habits that have propelled you towards success?

    We are excited to hear your insights and experiences on these topics. Let’s engage in a meaningful discussion that not only enriches our understanding but also empowers us to lead more fulfilling lives, both personally and professionally.

    Thank you for your insights Khadijah! I truly believe that if we change our mindset we can find our version of a work-life balance, one that works for us. Everything seems to be extremely fast-paced these days, and it can feel like we’re getting pulled into a million different directions, which is why I believe mindset is key.

    Instead of chasing after this perfect balance that never seems to come, maybe it’s more about accepting that there’ll always be some give and take, particularly as all of these factors will ebb and flow in our lives. If we prioritise during specific time periods one factor over the other, and accept that we’re doing so, that there will be trade-offs, we can start to achieve a more realistic work-life balance.

    I’m eager to hear Jodi’s insights and experiences on these topics, and engage in a discussions that can help us and empowers us all to lead more fulfilling lives, both personally and professionally.

      Thank you Izzy! I particularly like your use of the phrase “ebb and flow” as I too believe we are always changing and growing as people and as humans. It is inevitable that our priorities will keep on changing depending on the course of our lives!
