  2. 2. ABOUT THE SPEAKER Ni g e l Ma rs h   i s t h e author of Fit, Fifty and Fired-Up, Fat, Forty and Fired and Overworked and Underlaid. He's the chairman of strategic research consultancy The Leading Edge and the co- founder of the energy- saving movement Earth H o u r .

  5. 5. Nigel Marsh offers four important observations about work-life balance.#
  6. 6. 1.! If society's to make any progress on this issue, we need an honest debate.  #
  7. 7. The first step in solving any problem is acknowledging the reality of the situation you're in.! # And the reality of the society that we're in is there are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet, screaming desperation, where they work long, hard hours at jobs they hate to enable them to buy things they don't need to impress people they don't like.  #
  8. 8. 2.! We need to face the truth that governments and corporations aren't going to solve this issue for us. #
  9. 9. It's up to us as individuals to take control and responsibility for the type of lives that we want to lead. ! ! If you don't design your life, someone else will design it for you, and you may just not like their idea of balance. # We have to be responsible for setting and enforcing the boundaries that we want in our life. #
  10. 10. 3.! We have to be careful with the time frame that we choose upon which to judge our balance.  #
  11. 11. We need to elongate the time frame upon which we judge the balance in our life, but we need to elongate it without falling into the trap of the "I'll have a life when I retire, when my kids have left home, when my wife has divorced me, my health is failing, I've got no mates or interests left.”# # # A day is too short; "after I retire" is too long. # There's got to be a middle way.#
  12. 12. 4.! We need to approach balance in a balanced way.#
  13. 13. There are different parts to life:# intellectual side,# emotional side, # spiritual side. # # And to be balanced, # we have to attend to all of those areas.#
  14. 14. Small things matter. !  #Being more balanced ! doesn't mean dramatic! upheaval in your life.#
  15. 15. With the smallest investment in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life. # Moreover, it can transform society.#
  16. 16. Because if enough people do it, we can change society's definition of success away from the moronically simplistic notion that the person with the most money when he dies wins, to a more thoughtful and balanced definition of what a life well lived looks like.#
