The Myth of Work Life Balance


Movement Science Department

Some have suggested that work-life balance is a myth and it may be impossible to actually have it all. Others suggest that acceptance of ones place in life is essential to becoming comfortable with ones decisions to spend additional focus on family or work (Joyner, 2012). And still others suggest that only women feel guilt in association with choosing career over family at times during their lives (Spar, 2012). But ultimately, the message is that combining a fast-track career with a truly satisfying family life is a challenge for which few are prepared. How can faculty achieve career satisfaction and success while maintaining a fulfilling life outside of work?
