Finding balance keeps things steady, even, perfectly distributed. When you’re constructing that new playset for your backyard that your children will swing and climb on, you want to find level ground. You don’t want your kids to be on an incline, wobbling as they soar into the air. No, you want the right side to be balanced with the left. When you’re making that recipe that makes your mouth water, and it calls for equal parts sugar and flour, you carefully measure the ingredients to ensure the best outcome. You don’t just pour haphazardly into the mixing bowl just hoping it turns out alright. The same ideology applies to you and to your life.
Oftentimes, our jobs take precedence over our personal lives. We “live to work and work to live.” 66% of American workers feel a lack work-life balance (Small Biz Trends, BLS, CNBC) Furthermore, 77% of full-time US employees experienced professional burn out at their current job (Business Insider, Deloitte). So, if you are feeling the scale is tipping more one way or the other, you’re not alone. Trying to juggle all the things that life throws at you, while still feeling successful in your job can be stressful, exhausting, and worrisome. At Quantum, we value your professional growth and your personal growth and work hard to establish a work-life balance that is achievable and manageable. Balance can look different to different people, so it’s important to know that it is a constant challenge, that must evolve as things in your life ebb and flow.
