Work-life balance is an overused phrase for a misunderstood ideal. “Balance” suggests a measuring of weights – or maybe hours. But surely there is no golden ratio of work to personal life that will result in happiness for everyone.
Yet we intuitively understand what the phrase means. And what it means, I think, is the feeling that you aren’t working too much; a state where you’re enjoying the values from both home life and work life, and one isn’t being sacrificed to the other. That’s not easy to achieve for entrepreneurs.
