Work Life Balance Quotes

A great life balances work with family, serious with playful, adventure with serenity. To imagine a life in balance, visualize an old-fashioned balance scale, with opposites weighed against each other. When living a life in balance, one indulges in the occasional hot fudge sundae, but balanced with a few bowls of oatmeal and small portions. The occasional hard run balanced with an afternoon sprawled in front of the television football game. An afternoon at the bungee-jump or zip-line balanced with time drifting on a placid lake. Rather than the constant grayness of moderation, a life in balance has points of interest and variability.

One of the crucial areas of balance is work-life balance - the balance between a career, with its satisfaction of creativity and financial reward, and family life with its reward of love and service.

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that
adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.
- William Arthur Ward
