No, says Buckingham. It’s about finding love in what you do. Simply because you want to keep doing what’s enjoyable to do. This is key, rather than striving for a balance between work and private life. Finding a perfect balance is not obvious as this is almost impossible in our constantly changing reality. What we should focus on, is the conviction of what you are doing and to be happy to do this. When you know what you like to do, your love can start weaving through your work.
Get started yourself.
Think about the last working week. List which things gave you energy and which you liked. In addition, you make a list of the things that you liked less and prefer not to spend too much time on. Now you can weave. Try to think about the things you like to do and how you can use these strengths more often. There may also be links to reduce the things that provoke revulsion.
