Work-Life Balance is Dead
Do you constantly have an internal dialog about not doing enough? Do you make a mental “sticky note” of the three to five things that you absolutely must get done today—only to find at the end of the workday that not only did you fail to get those things done, but you’ve added more items to the list? Do you hold on to an internal belief that “somehow, someday” you’ll get caught up?
Flip Brown, founder of Business Culture Consultants and author of Balanced Effectiveness at Work: How to Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor without Driving Yourself Nuts, believes that we always have options no matter what our work situation is—however we frequently default into blame, withdrawal, or just plan crabbiness! His book is a resiliency manual for anyone who works for a living, in which he addresses the chronic dissatisfaction that comes from being in a crazy-paced, priority-confusing, soul-sapping workplace.
Set aside an hour to listen in as Flip shares his “Top 10 Tips” to make being at work work better. You will learn about the chronic dissatisfaction that comes from trying to do more than you can actually do. Flip’s approach is a light-hearted but in-depth look at working and living well, presented in a unique news-you-can-use format. His tips will provide you with real options, helpful resources, and renewed optimism to find more meaning and fulfillment, both in and out of work.
