Can a balance between working and enjoying life really exist as described by schemes such as "enjoy more and suffer less"?
How many times have we heard someone talking about enjoying life, family and friends and not letting work absorb us? Nigel Marsh describes his perfect day yet he has never had it or how to have a balance between work and family without stop working. This is the same idea John Maeda proposes but the reality is that it seems almost impossible to achieve, specially when we want to achieve financial stability by means other than winning the lottery. So the question is, can this balance be truly achieved and has anyone achieved it? How close have people been to achieving it?
Me personally I doubt it can be achieved, but what can be done is have periods of hard work and then periods of enjoying life taking place at different times, not at the same time. What do you think?
