Forget Work Life Balance – Seven Paradigm Shifts for The New 24/7 Normal
Is the work life juggle driving you insane? The reality of life is that we have a “new normal”.
Five trends create this new normal:
Technology enables us to be always connected
There are fewer people needing to do more work
Globalization and speed of information flow demands 24/7 responsiveness
The speed of change is more than we can keep up with
The need to be “on” as new competitors emerge from unlikely places
I am a big fan of Albert Einstein. One of my favorite quotes is “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If the way we’re working doesn’t work, we need to shift our paradigms about work. Otherwise, we risk burning ourselves out. Organizations risk employees who are stressed out, run out of creative fuel, and disengage.
