What is one of the first questions you ask when you meet someone? Most often, it is “What do you do?” This question is more than just an opportunity to introduce yourself or find out about another person… it is a reflection of our culture and how much we think a career defines you. Most of us spend the better part of our lives working, therefore it is vitally important that the way you spend your time from 9-5 (or whatever hours you work) feeds your soul and is an expression of who you say you are in the world.
If you are retired, it is obviously much easier to dictate your daily schedule than if you work. However, whichever camp you are in, having your day be a reflection of your goals, commitments and passions is crucial to whole life balance.
