There is no work-life balance

I have decided, while brushing my teeth having finished off the previous post which was a multi-day task under the circumstances, that the whole idea of a work/life balance is bollocks.

Forone thing work is part of life so the balance is immediately skewed.
For another, life – or mine at least – is a fairly complex set of variables and priorities amongst which I establish a constantly shifting equilibrium. Attempting to maintain any particular state of that equilibrium causes significant stress.

Doesn’t translate very well into HR policy I suppose.
