why work-life “balance” doesn’t work

Today I am presenting a re-blog post by my friend, Susan DiMickele. She is the author of Working Women of the Bible and other books.

For many years I struggled with the idea of ​​seeking “balance” for all areas of life. I often used “tension” or “rhythm” as a better word, but I enjoyed how Susan described the issue on her blog. I think you are going to like it also…

I frequently am asked the question:  “How do you achieve work-life balance?”

My standard response used to be, “Well, I pray and I maintain a sense of humor.”

But then I got to thinking.  Who am I really kidding?  Most weeks, there is no balance in my life.  Why don’t I just admit it?

And I don’t think I’m alone.  The word “balance” just doesn’t describe the lives of most working professionals I know.

Please continue reading here!

Also, if you want to read more about Susan’s excellent book, Working Women of the Bible, I wrote a post about it here.
