“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”–Winston Churchill

Work-life balance is a buzz word in today’s American culture. Not that many of us have it mastered, but I think many of us wish we could.

The infographic at undercoverrecruiter.com gives some great tips. From setting priorities to actually scheduling fun, we need to become more intentional about finding a healthy balance in life. And it appears, the younger generation is leading by example.

Despite the negative comments we often hear about the millennial generation, several studies say millennials tend to have a better grasp of the work-life concept than do most of us baby boomers.

Millennials don’t live for work, they work to live. Even millennials who admit they have a bad reputation have the insight in using the traits often deemed negatively to their advantage.

From boomer-generation management to millennial new hires, I think there are learning opportunities from both sides of the bargaining table. I look forward to inviting alumni back into the classroom years down the road to hear firsthand how they are managing work-life balance in their careers.

What about you? Do you need help with work-life balance? If so, I suggest finding yourself a millennial mentor!

Pull up a chair and let’s talk.

    Great post! Even as a millennial I still have a hard time turning off work mode but I think I still balance my personal life rather well.

    Thanks for sharing!
