“My boss always wants to know why all I do is talk about my vacation. It’s because I live for it – 49 weeks for those three.”
This is the conversation I had with a woman at the HRPA 2015 Convention and Trade Show that our team attended last week.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for vacation and the ability to relax and unwind. But too many of us end up wishing away a lot of time for just a little bit.
What would happen if we lived in a society where there was no separation between work and life? What would it be like if you didn't have to choose between “living to work” or “working to live”? What if you could just live your life no matter if you were at work or at home?
Now’s the time for people to be just as pumped about going to work as going on vacation (okay, maybe not just as pumped, but still able to look forward to it).
How would businesses improve if we all brought our whole selves to work every day and work was fulfilling enough that we needn't spend our time dreaming about when we don’t have to be there?
