Work-life balance has nothing to do with work. Really. It also doesn't matter what words you use to describe it. The fact is, most people share a similar desire to create easy joy and meaningful engagement across the roles, relationships and responsibilities that make up life.
Our current habits and perceptions often get us stuck and prevent us from creating the life we desire. Get unstuck, learn the truths about work-life balance.
What I found inside wasn't content in the traditional sense. The five truths are listed, and there are some supporting comments, but the book really is laid out as a series of graphic poster pages with a few words on each. The best way I can describe it is a quote - a nugget of thought - per page. The truths and ideas shared on those pages are strong, but what I feel is missing is deeper insight and support for those struggling to find that balance.
In the end this book is super easy to read, short and inspirational. It has nice graphics with important truths shared, but the content was too limited for anyone wanting serious insight. I would love to see the author take the strong ideas contained here, take the exploration of this subject to a much deeper level and offer a more comprehensive book on this important topic. Hopefully she'll consider doing this in the future.
