PEO­PLE WHO HAVE JOBS RATHER THAN CA­REERS WORRY ABOUT WORK-LIFE BAL­ANCE BE­CAUSE THEY ARE UN­ABLE TO HAVE FUN AT WORK

Finweek English Edition - - MANAGEMENT -

If you are lucky enough to have a ca­reer – as op­posed to a job – then you should em­brace the work-life im­bal­ance. A ca­reer pro­vides a higher sense of pur­pose; a job pro­vides an in­come. A job pays for what you do; a ca­reer pays for what you love. If you are al­ways count­ing the num­ber of hours you work, you prob­a­bly have a job rather than a ca­reer. Con­versely, the more blurred the bound­aries be­tween your work and life, the more suc­cess­ful you prob­a­bly are in both. A true ca­reer isn’t a nine-tofive en­deav­our. If you are hav­ing fun worki ng, you will al­most cer­tainly keep work­ing. Your ca­reer success de­pends on elim­i­nat­ing the di­vi­sion be­tween work and play. Who cares about work-life bal­ance
