Forget Work Life Balance – Seven Paradigm Shifts for The New 24/7 Normal

Is the work life juggle driving you insane? The reality of life is that we have a “new normal”.

Five trends create this new normal:

Technology enables us to be always connected

There are fewer people needing to do more work

Globalization and speed of information flow demands 24/7 responsiveness

The speed of change is more than we can keep up with

The need to be “on” as new competitors emerge from unlikely places

I am a big fan of Albert Einstein. One of my favorite quotes is “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If the way we’re working doesn’t work, we need to shift our paradigms about work. Otherwise, we risk burning ourselves out. Organizations risk employees who are stressed out, run out of creative fuel, and disengage.
