Your favorite community SoCo Austin apartments is back with another informative blog post for our residents, and this week’s blog is all about work-life balance. This is a hot topic in Austin, as young companies try to help their employees find the perfect balance between working hard and giving people the freedom to live their lives outside of the office.
In the post below, you’ll find a few quotes that we hope will inspire you to find a better work-life balance. Whether you’re working in a fast-paced office that demands all your attention or you work from home and are trying to figure out how to strike the right balance between work and family, we think the quotes in this post will help you achieve your goals.
Without further delay, let’s get right to it! When you finish reading through this post, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at CityView — the South Congress apartments Austin residents choose for luxury and comfort.
“You will never feel truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life.”
— Heather Schuck, The Working Mom Manifesto
Heather Schuck raises the point that it’s hard to feel good about your work if the rest of your life isn’t going as planned. It’s much easier to focus on work when the rest of your life is in order. So much advice about work-life balance has to do with the fact that your performance at work will suffer if you’re not happy outside of work, and this bit of advice is no different.
“Love those close to you: Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationship is.”
— Ev Williams
As the founder of Twitter said, it’s hard to fail at work but it’s even harder to fail at relationships that really matter to you. When your company fails, you can start a new one. When a relationship fails, there’s no such thing as starting a brand new one to make it right. If you’re ever faced with the decision to stay at the office or go to an important event with a significant other, think of this quote!
“Burnout is about resentment. Preventing it is about knowing yourself well enough to know what it is you’re giving up that makes you resentful.”
— Marissa Mayer
Burnout is a hot button among young employees in the workforce, and it’s an especially important issue if you work in a creative field. It’s hard to recover from burnout, and once it sets in you’re basically out of luck in terms of trying to fall in love with your job again. If you find yourself resenting certain aspects of your job, take a break and avoid burnout!
With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of quotes that will help you achieve work-life balance! We hope that you’re able to use these tips to find more free time this summer, and we would like to thank you for taking some time out of your busy schedule to read our latest blog post!
