All-in, all-out — finding work/life balance

(page 2 of 2)

You may find yourself asking if there is a “right” style. I would say there isn’t one style in particular that is right, as I have seen various styles work for various positions and for various people within organizations. However, I can tell you what’s wrong. What’s wrong is when individuals aren’t able to check out or be what I call “all-out” to the extent they need.  It is critical to check out and be “all-out” in order to be “all-in” at work. By “all-in,” I mean that you come with enthusiasm and focus (no Web surfing, personal phone calls, daydreaming, etc.) when you’re at work.

That kind of focus creates success, and the ability to comfortably check out (on whatever basis) gives you the feeling of balance and a fair value relationship with your work. Have you figured out what’s the right way for you to be “all-out” and “all-in”?

I really needed to read this article today. The statement that really resonated with me was - It is critical to check out and be “all-out” in order to be “all-in” at work. By “all-in,” I mean that you come with enthusiasm and focus (no Web surfing, personal phone calls, daydreaming, etc.) when you’re at work.

In thirteen years I have never been "all-out" but I have a long weekend planned up North in August and I am going to try this "all out" idea for three days! Thanks Corey. Your blogs are great.
