I very much admire my fried Neal Moore, who has relocated to Singapore to set up a new Asia Pacific operation for his company, Telecom TV (http://www.telecomtv.com). For those of you interested in the world of telecoms, this is a really great video and media company which makes the business of telecoms most entertaining!
Neal has been working a crazy working schedule to get things moving, and came up with the following observation: "Work/life balance isn't just about finding time to relax outside of work, it's also about finding time to do something you are passionate about where you set the goals and nurture skills or ambitions that are neglected at work!".
Neal helped me to remember the importance of setting personal as well as career goals. After all - work is part of life - it's not life itself!
