Obsessed with work
(0:44) “For some reason, we tend to have a very narrow focus on career and work in this context. We look at professional success and promotions, prestigious job titles in big-name corporations, that very impressive CV, the salary increases of course… and we even tend to glorify being ‘busy’.”
(2:13) “In my experience, both from my own life and from working with clients over the last few years, I’ve identified five key areas in our lives that need to be balanced in order for us to thrive and live a truly successful life in a more whole and holistic and meaningful sense.”
(7:18) “Of course, that’s not to say that you need to focus on all of them all of the time and be 10 out of 10 on each area; inevitably, there will be ups and downs, and it may be important to focus on one area at a time so as not to get overwhelmed.”
(9:48) “Each of these five areas builds on the other. Your wellbeing in particular is absolutely fundamental to everything else. Especially when you’re working for yourself, taking care of yourself is taking care of your business; and, as the saying goes, you need to put your oxygen mask on yourself before you help other people.”
(13:11) “It is important to emphasise that this is an ongoing, lifelong process. There’s no rush; it’s all about taking little steps.”
