“I don’t think that there is ever a disconnection point between either work or life” – [Kelly]

“We put so much emphasis on the concept of balance, but it’s really only ‘balance’ on the work side” – [Kelly]

“Give up the fight to try to balance… and realize that they’re intertwined and that’s okay so long as you figure out when one needs to take priority over the other in the moment that it needs to take priority” – [Kelly]

“We don’t set boundaries, we’re too eager to say ‘Yes’ to things, we don’t say ‘No’ to enough things” – [Steve]

“One of the greatest lessons of writing your eulogy alive is the fact that you have an ‘Edit’ button” – [Kelly]

“But if you know what you’re driving towards then your goals reflect what you’re driving towards and life doesn’t seem so out of balance because you’re driving towards something” – [Kelly]

“Life is a long race and you need to pace yourself” – [Steve]

Key Takeaways:

  • Work-life balance has different meanings to different people.
  • Steve describes the impact of Covid19 on the working hours and burnout rate of Americans generally, noting that work-life balance is possible.
  • Kelly doesn’t believe work-life balance is possible, explaining that since both are so tightly intertwined, the idea that each can have a separate time allocated to it is not feasible. A key point of note is that other aspects of life don’t stop when you’re at work.
  • Give up the fight to try to balance and realize that they’re intertwined and that’s okay so long as you figure out when one needs to take priority over the other at the moment that it needs to take priority.
  • There are things we can do to help be a bit more balanced. One of them is ‘Setting Boundaries’.
  • Understanding that the concept of work-life balance depends on your personal priorities, it is critical that you’re honest with yourself and you understand exactly where you want to go and what you want to do.
  • Sharing a strategy where she asks her clients to write their eulogy, Kelly explains how this puts into perspective the things that really matter and offers the benefit of being able to still edit your eulogy by living your life towards what you want to be remembered for.
  • People need to understand what is really important in their lives and focus their efforts on those priorities and nothing elsee.
