You know when people say “my work doesn’t feel like work”?
What’s so wrong with work feeling like work? Sometimes, the work itself is the reward. I think that’s what people get wrong about trying to achieve “work/life” balance. There is no divide between the two to the point that you don’t know what you are really engaged in anymore.
Separation is healthy. So if your work feels like work, don’t worry, it does for most people who are good at work and good at life.
