172: #WorkLifeHarmony

‘Work Life Balance’ seems to be the new craze, but it’s unrealistic to think that work and life can be equally balanced on a scale. Inevitably, one takes over more time and energy than the other. But if we can learn to keep work and life living in harmony with each other, then we might just have found the secret to success. Tune in to hear more about the term ‘Work Life Harmony’ from the great mind of Jeff Bezos with additional inspiration from Simon Sinek.


  • It’s hard to create a strong team when people aren’t connected.
  • I am trying to do too much that doesn’t matter, and I am becoming less because of it.
  • When we think everything has to be equally balanced, we set ourselves up for failure
  • If you are like me and living an unbalanced out of harmony life you are missing moments that matter
