LET'S LOOK AT ''WORK-LIFE BALANCE'' DIFFERENTLY
Every bit of life was meant to be enjoyed to the best possible extent. You were born to contribute with your unique talents through your work/ career ! Do you consistently experience Monday blues? Are you one of those who is all the time waiting for ‘’weekends’’ or ‘’planned vacations’’ to celebrate your life ? Well, in that case it’s time for ‘’Introspection’’ if you’re actually in the ‘’right kind of job/ career/ work’’ or not? Are you in the right workplace? Have you hit saturation in terms of your ‘’career role’’ ? Do you feel completely disconnected from your current work / career role, workplace, colleagues, work culture? Ask yourself these questions and deep dive within and you will surely find some authentic answers !
Are you a 'Chartered Accountant' by choice or would you feel more fulfilled tapping into your writing talent and turning into a 'Writer'? Are you a 'Software Engineer' by choice or do you think that 'singing talent' of yours could be nurtured further and you can find ways to develop as a professional singer'? Are you a 'Lawyer' by choice or do you think you would be happier being a Professor who is making a difference to the lives of several young students ?
Ask yourself what can be done creatively and practically for you to be able to take these steps towards the career/ profession/ work that is your true calling?
WELL, IF YOU SEEM TO HAVE POSITIVE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS LISTED ABOVE...CONGRATULATIONS! AT THIS JUNCTURE OF LIFE, YOU ARE INDEED IN THE ''RIGHT CAREER AND WORKPLACE'' CHERISH IT....LEARN, CONTRIBUTE AND GROW...KEEP LETTING ''LIFE FLOW'' INTO YOUR WORK ! AND IN THE FUTURE, IN CASE YOU FEEL IT'S TIME FOR A 'BIG CHANGE',...IT'S PERFECTLY FINE FOR YOU TO MAKE A TRANSITION TOWARDS SOMETHING TOTALLY NEW AND DIFFERENT IN TERMS OF YOUR CAREER...AS YOU FEEL READY:-)...YOU DON'T HAVE TO SUBMIT TO GUILT AND GO ABOUT JUSTIFYING IT TO ANYONE ...JUST GO FOR IT !
Discover your true calling in terms of your ‘’work/ career’’! Understand your talents... Is your current career role, able to give you an opportunity to utilize at least some or most of your talents? If the answer is no, STOP RUSTING…the more you stay ‘’in a place of stagnation and mediocrity'' , the more you are doing grave injustice to your life's true purpose ! You aren't loving yourself enough, to truly feel deserving of the type of career/ work that inspires you to wake up to, every single day of your life ! YOU WERE MEANT TO CONSTANTLY EVOLVE AND NOT STAGNATE....THIS IS INDEED, A VERY CRUCIAL ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE'S TRUE PURPOSE !
Remember even your current and past career roles have been preparing you for your highest purpose ! So be grateful to them all ! First try and bring about some 'novelty' in your attitude and contribution even in your current work/ career role no matter how saturated you feel....Who knows you may find something totally new, inspiring and enriching in your current role ? Explore the unexplored first in your current situation...before proceeding to your next destination...That's when you will also need to develop the courage to take a ''plunge into the unknown'' !
Never leave a single 'stone unturned' before you move on, towards something more meaningful and fulfilling in terms of your career? Before you experience the ''shift/ transition'' from your current career to a new career which will enable you to tap into your highest potential, you will have to be prepared for some ''mighty/ tough and yet intriguing lessons'' !!!
SO THERE IS ONLY ONE THING CALLED ''A BALANCED LIFE'' ! WE NEED TO TAKE A RE-LOOK AT THE TERMS ''WORK-LIFE BALANCE'' AND THE CONDITIONED THINKING THAT WE HAVE DEVELOPED IN THIS REGARD...AS ''WORK AND LIFE'' ARE ''NOT MEANT TO BE SEPARATED'' ....AS ''WORK'' ( IS PART )RATHER ONE OF THE MAIN AREAS OF LIFE ( WHICH IS THE WHOLE) !
