There is no life and work balance right now. It is all about our life.
Work at home has given a whole new taste of living life not in compartments but in fluidity and delighting in that fluidity.
What we learned from the lockdown is really about slowing down. Slowing down enables us to think, reflect, ponder about the most important aspects of our lives and our work.
Without the distraction and wasted time of commute and going about our daily lives in mindless chatter and goings-on, we can be more attuned to the people around us, to the ideas that we hear, and we are more receptive and open to change.
When we really get connected to our most important essence, we become fully alive and able to become united with our purpose.
The obstacle to real greatness is the distractions all around us. Working from home is about controlling our environment and making clear boundaries about what is work and what is home, and enjoying a lot of downtime which is healthy and renewing for our families and for ourselves. This also allows us to be more critical of how much time we really need versus how much we have been expending to get our tasks done. Also, being fully present to accomplish work in our homes means, doing our best and taking off when it's time.
Slowing down means being more strategic about our use of time in the context of WFH.
The future is not about life and work balance but life balance.
