Business is life, life is business

I have long said it before and I will say it again, there is no work/life balance, there is only life. You never hear the term marriage/life balance. Nor do you hear someone say they’re trying to find their child/life balance. Work is a component of life, just as your marriage, your friends, your children and even your time at the gym. The term work/life balance did not even exist before 1986. That was the year the personal computer came on the scene and we start to take our work home with us. Only then did we want to separate our work and life to find balance.

The most successful businessmen don’t see any distinction between ‘work’ and ‘life,’ and they never use the term, which implies that something is laborious.
