What is the Balance between Work Life and Personal Life?

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a firm-sponsored CPE about career/life integration. The focus on the CPE was on how to unite your career and personal life. It differs from work/life balance, in that, work/life balance is like a scale – it is rarely in balance. The scale is either going to be weighed down by work and your personal life gets neglected or vice versa. The speaker said something that resonated with me, “You learn about delegation at work, but are there some things in your personal life that should be delegated?” Because PKM is such a great place to work and I enjoy what I do, it is easy for me to slip and become a work-a-holic. While I am still trying to determine what I should delegate in my personal life, I always remind myself that it is important to keep a balanced life.
