Taking control of your work+life fit, or the way work and life “fit” together, day-to-day and at major life transitions, helps you personally unlock the power of a high performance flexible work culture to be your best, on and off the job.

You must know what you want to achieve before you can figure out how to leverage the work flexibility, technology and workspace options that are available to get those tasks done productively and effectively.

Why work+life fit, and not “balance” or “integration?”

Work-life “balance” is a lie that keeps us stuck. There is no magical 50-50 split between work and life that we are all aspiring to achieve, but never will. Work+life fit is about the possibilities that make sense for you and your job, based on your unique, ever-changing work and personal realities. Work+life fit is like snowflakes. No two are alike.

Work and life are already integrated. That’s today’s reality. The two spheres are one and the same. For some, the complete “integration” of work and life will be their desired fit. But, for others, integration is the problem. They need better boundaries. More separation. That’s the fit they manage within the reality of integration.
