We have all probably heard about work-life balance. Chances are if you are in a leadership or other position of responsibility you probably struggled with this at some point in your career. As you got more senior it seemed to be more work and less life.
Perhaps there is a reason why this happens. You probably have some ideas about your career. The level of seniority, how much money you are making, the level of influence you want to have and type of impact to name just a few.
What about career goals? Do you have any? Do you know what success inside and outside of work means?
If you are like most, probably not. I’m often as guilty as the next person when it comes to this area.
On the other hand what I have noticed is if you can look more at success holistically rather than just in compartments, the more likely you are to achieve success on all fronts.
