  1. Hi Rolf,

    I think WLB is a matter of mindset. Learning when to say no is as important as when to be gung ho and say yes. I think sitting down, doing your sums and understand what is your own FU$ is important. It gives you a direct monetary value to when you can say no to extra work and when you should say yes.

    For my job, I like to see I have very good WLB even though I work 7 days a week. My work is a blend of work and family. When I'm at home and my wife is around, it doesn't even feel like work. Sometimes my wife will drive me to places, wait for me for 2 hrs for my work to end, then we'll go shopping and hve some tea before I hve to go again. When we blend in work with life, it became a kind of work that we don't have to avoid. It's no longer segregated into work time and family time. Work time IS family time 😉

    1. Hi LP,

      FU$… something to tell your boss? Am I right?

      I am very lucky that in my entire career, I always met very nice bosses to me, except for one time! I tell him to FO…

      Of course FF is very important, and I agree! It empowers us mentality and gives us the extra confidence maybe to do even better.

      Blending work with life is a very special privilege for people who have found it! U found it…. Congrats!

      Your wife is so nice! I hope my wife drive me around.. haha

  2. Hi Rolf,

    I came across this article today on my fb feed:

    "You don't think work/life balance, you just think life.

    Symbolic work/life boundaries are almost impossible to maintain. Why? You are your business. Your business is your life, just like your life is your business—which is also true for family, friends, and interests — so there is no separation because all those things make you who you are. Incredibly successful people find ways to include family instead of ways to exclude work. They find ways to include interests, hobbies, passions, and personal values in their daily business lives. If you can't, you're not living — you're just working.

    That's exactly what I'm talking about!

    1. Hi LP,

      Thanks for the article. It is very nice and I agree. Provided you must love your work to be able to include family and interest in it. So it still goes back to the issue of knowing who u r n what u really want then find a work that u really like that can generate income n incorporate ur life!

      Ok I need to stop the Sh…t of always reminding knowing who we r? haha. Thanks a lot once again.

  3. It's so hard to maintain work/life balance right now! When I was studying in the college, I thought it's quite hard to manage personal life with education. I even used http://flashessay.strikingly.com/ for help! But now I realized that I had plenty of time back that. And now I don't even have any helper(
