Do you work to live or live to work?
For many people the COVID pandemic has really raised the question of the meaningfulness of work and their own purpose. Rather than being only a means to end, this situation has raised the question regarding ‘how much do I need?’ and ‘what am I willing to sacrifice for it?’.
For some it has brought about the realisation that they no longer want to be part of the rat race and there is a shift of people moving away from the inner city to more suburban or rural areas. Indeed, this maybe the case for a privileged group while others may need to endure their current situation until such a time comes that they are able to change direction.
What does your work mean to you and does it accord with your vision of balance?
