Myth #3: What Works for Me, Works for Everyone Else
In any work environment, every employee has their own individual capacity and pace in performing their tasks. It is not necessary that if you are able to finish your work at a given time, your fellow colleagues would be able to do the same too. It also depends on individual goals. For instance, an employee who is aggressively striving for the next big promotion is likely to put in more hours of work than an employee who is happy in his current position.
Myth #4: The Bosses Have It Balanced & Easy
No matter how high up the corporate ladder you go, the challenge of managing work and life’s demands is always there. Getting promoted to the coveted corner office will not automatically solve all your problems or give you the perfect work-life balance. In fact, it might get more challenging.
Myth #5: I’m The Only One Who Feels Unbalanced
The truth is every working individual is struggling to find the right balance. Having a perfectly balanced work and home life is a complex process that actually never ends. Whether you work in an office or freelance, the challenge of balancing work and life demands is always there.
