Nigel Marsh on how to make work-life balance work

I came across this great TED talk about work-life balance. I particularly like the bit where Nigel says:

“We need to be realistic. You can’t do it all in one day. We need to elongate the time frame upon which we judge the balance of our life, but we need to elongate it without falling into the trap of the ‘I’ll have a life when I retire, when my kids have left home, when my wife has divorced me, my health is failing, I’ve got no mates or interests left.’

A day is too short, after I retire is too long. There’s got to be a middle way.”

What do you guys think?
