#WorkTrends Recap: Forget Work-Life Balance & Start LIFEworking: Pick Yourself in the 21st Century

During today’s #WorkTrends show, we discussed the importance of forgetting the old “work-life balance myth” and how to start LIFEworking. #WorkTrends Founder and Host Meghan M. Biro was joined by Tim McDonald and Ayelet Baron, Co-Founders of CreatingIs and LIFEworking.

While we have been led to believe that we can separate our personal and work personas, we are only one person. We don’t need to have this separation and balancing act; it’s more about blending work into our lives.

During the event, we learned more about LIFEworking, is an approach that meshes life and work into an integrated existence. Most importantly, it is a way of living in which the individual and not the organization defines the meaning of success. To achieve LIFEworking, we need to first understand what success really means for us, and then systematically address the fears that stand in the way of change. These fears typically relate to personal anxiety and the social consequences of choice.

It was a lively #WorkTrends podcast and Twitter conversation. Participants had a lot to share about the topic, making for another successful #WorkTrends show.
