Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.
With the workplace more competitive than ever, it can be tempting to take your work home with you so that you’re one-step ahead of everyone else. Convention speakers like Andy Core recommend that doing this can actually hinder your chances of success, instead of helping them.
The more you blur the lines between the two, the more upset you’ll be when something goes wrong. Everybody needs distractions to keep things in perspective and cultivating both your work and home lives equally can help. When you arrive at work, make sure you’re fully prepared mentally, emotionally and physically to deal with all the challenges.
Conversely, when you leave the office, leave the issues at your desk. Your family and friends, while sympathetic to you problems, aren’t your psychiatrist and shouldn’t be treated as such. It’s good to vent to them, but make sure you’re drawing a careful line between unloading and bringing your work home.
Convention speakers say that it’s okay to work as hard as you play. There’s no reason you can’t enjoy both, but just make sure that you keep a good balance between the two. It’ll be better for you both in the short- and long-term.
