Is working LONGER hours the answer?!

Updated: Jan 21

I read this article on CNN today in which the CEO of Wayfair in his year end message to employees said: “Working long hours, being responsive, blending work and life, is not anything to shy away from. There is not a lot of history of laziness being rewarded with success.”


Have you seen this article/madness?! Here's why I vehemently disagree with Mr. Shah, especially as a "new" father and husband - one who also works very hard at whatever I do.


The Power of Work/Life Balance


As a CEO in the hustle-and-bustle world, I get it – finding the perfect work/life balance can be a challenge. But here's the scoop: mastering this delicate dance is the key to unleashing your full potential.


Top 5 Reasons Why Work/Life Balance Matters:


❶ Enhanced Productivity: Balance boosts your efficiency, helping you accomplish more in less time. Work smart, not just hard!

❷ Health is Wealth: A well-balanced life contributes to your physical and mental well-being. Remember, a healthy CEO is a successful CEO!

❸ Creativity Unleashed: Stepping away from work lets your mind wander and fosters creativity. Breaks are the birthplace of brilliant ideas!

❹ Improved Relationships: Whether personal or professional, balance allows you to invest time in meaningful connections. It's the secret sauce to building lasting relationships.

❺ Sustainable Success: A harmonious work/life balance ensures longevity in your career. Avoid burnout and embrace a sustainable path to success.


Top 5 Ways to Manage Work/Life Balance:


❶ Prioritize Self-Care: Treat yourself as a priority, not an option. Schedule downtime just like you would a crucial meeting.

❷ Set Boundaries: Define clear boundaries between work and personal life. Learn to say no when needed and protect your precious time.

❸ Technology Detox: Unplug regularly. Give your mind a break from screens and notifications. Your smartphone can wait; your well-being can't!

❹ Delegate Like a Pro: Trust your team and delegate tasks. You don't have to do it all yourself – that's what a reliable team is for!

❺ Plan Luxury Getaways: A change of scenery can work wonders. Let our luxury travel agency handle the details while you focus on recharging your batteries.
