Work/life balance is BS

For me the concept of work/life balance is bullshit. The fact that we call it work/life balance automatically implies that one of the two is negative and we need to balance it with the other.

It usually implies that you have work on the evil side, and life on the other. It makes it look like these two things are competing for your attention and well being.

But work and life are not separate. They are the same, there is only one thing, it’s called LIFE. Work is part of my life, it’s not competing against it.

Family is important, friends are important. But work is a huge part of who I am as a person. I believe work is one of the most important things in ones life.
