A one-day seminar was arranged for the ‘Associates’ of the Nagarjuna Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd. Kakinada. The topics chosen were: Work Life Balance and Time Management. These two topics are intimately connected, in the sense, that better time management leads to better work-life balance. Hence, the justification.
‘Balance’ is a very important concept. Balancing different, may be conflicting, aspects involves a better understanding, willingness to adjust, prioritize, may be compromise, sometimes, postpone for the present, and so on. The generally perceived conflict between personal life and career must be positively appreciated, to begin with. Issues such as, What is Work, What is Life, Why Balance, What happens if we do not or cannot balance, the consequences and the ill effects of an imbalance and more importantly how to approach the problem of balance – have been touched upon.
