Work Versus Life: It Doesn’t Have To Be a Trade-OffMichael Curran
The conflict of work and life events is an age-old conundrum that faces us all. It’s the choice between a project meeting and a daughter’s soccer game; a work conference or our best friend’s birthday party.
As much as you want to say that, you’ll prioritize your daughter’s soccer game or your best friend’s party, that can’t always be the case. You may realize that if you miss this project meeting, you won’t be able to present to your boss, and then you may not be able to go to that conference in Florida. Or that if you bypass a conference you might miss out on networking opportunities or new skills for your job. That’s when the choice can feel impossible. Advance your career or celebrate your daughter/best friend?
Well, you’re not alone in this struggle. 80 percent of today’s workforce is deskless. Every working person has tried to balance their professional and personal demands. In this fast-paced society where we’re running all the time, most of us don’t even know what down time is anymore. We need a way to communicate and collaborate easily, no matter where we are, so we can keep up.
