Work-life balance is one of the most talked about issues these days, though I’ve always thought that was something of a misnomer: after all, isn’t work actually a part of our lives? I evaluate balance in my life by reviewing the nine areas of wellness: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, professional, social, spiritual, and sexual. So, while I’d like to address the issue of “work-life” balance, I’ll be calling it professional wellness.
How do you rate your professional wellness, on a scale of 1 to 10? What would need to happen to make it a 10? What would a 10 look like to you? If your professional life were perfect, how would you feel?
