From the classroom to the C-suite, the term 'work-life' balance has become an increasingly popular concept over the past 5-6 years.
But what is it? does it actually happen?
In a world where a 9-5 existence doesn't really happen I would say that for the most part - no.
Personally, I would say that the the idea of having a work-life balance is a choice. Like anything else in life, you have to set priorities and determine what you want out of each week.
I'm not saying you have to give yourself a boot-camp-esque like schedule outlining each breath you plan on taking and when, but a little structure never hurts.
The otherside of this is if your job is causing you to work well over 40 hours each week and you're not happy - why are you doing it? and if you are happy... well really... if you're happy working 50+ hour work weeks for the majority of the year I think you might be lying or you're Hugh Hefner.
Do you feel you have a work-life balance? Does your organization support it in any way?
