Work-Life Flow. Not Work Life Balance.


Sean

As I have been working on many projects and networking like crazy, I have come to realize life is not so much a balance as it is a flow. I keep hearing you need to balance this to do that. I do agree life is about sacrifices. Yet, life is not segmented to a 9 to 5 structure work commitment. Life and work go hand in hand.

Life is about flow. I got burnt out working all day for five days a week. I had recoup time during the weekend. Yet, I always felt the weekend was not enough. So, I considered embracing flexibility. I would work a good amount during the day (not to the point of burning myself out) but found ways to enjoy the day. I would even take time to learn about subjects outside what I do every day. I fostered my professional development and made it fun.

Professional development keeps me on my toes. I try to set time out every month to read a good book or learn something not in my field (marketing). I expand my mind making me more adaptable to work and life circumstances.

While on my professional development quest, I have learned some valuable lessons. I have learned other Indianapolis professionals are putting a huge emphasis on growth. We all are busy. How do we create space to think in such a busy world? The idea is simple, but the process suites only to how they run the business. Not every business is the same like not every person or fingerprint is the same. We plan and focus on effective collaboration to create a great result. Every day we live is an opportunity to learn. In group settings, we learn more because we share more experiences.

We all have had good and bad company experiences. Why do we have bad experiences? Why are some companies great at building a customer experience?  I have read some powerful Indianapolis company blogs lately. Our community is shifting more focus on employees. We must build a powerful employee experience while maintaining a customer focus. Those experiences will reflect how professionals do business with customers. A professional’s workflow does not end being nice to a customer at the end of the business day. Workflow means work and life flow as one. If you are a positive person in a social environment, then you should be positive in a professional one.  Workflow is not always accomplished. We create plans suited for work-life flow. The result improves our whole life.

What are some instances you have noticed a positive workflow environment?
