First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
And then, I was dying to finish college and start working.
And then, I was dying to marry and have children.
And then, I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work.
And then, I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying……
And suddenly realise, I forgot to live.
As you read this old wisdom from an unknown source, how do you feel?
We talk about Work-life balance as though the two were separate.
It is almost as though we are saying that when we are working, we are not living. I find that sad.
Shouldn’t it be Life-Balance where work is an integral part of life and living?
My best wishes, Paul
