Speakers: In this episode of OPR, Opolis Founder & Executive Steward John Paller chats with Dana Look-Arimoto, author of Stop Settling, Settle Smart: Rethinking Work-life Balance, Redesign Your Busy Life.
“Work-life “balance” is a myth. Throughout our lives we’ve been sold a bill of goods that we can have it all, by being our all, by doing it all. There are limits to what we may achieve at one time and throughout our lives that require conscious trade-offs. We are simply not super-human. There are situational and relative life events that change how we live our lives, and therefore, how we navigate. This is why we must settle more and settle less, which is the key to settling smart!
Stop Settling® is a method, a mindset, and a movement that helps you understand who you are, what’s important to you, and make conscious choices about where you want to spend your time so that you are able to communicate that to others around you not only at work, but in all key life facets.
Remember, It’s not about balance. It is about harmonious integration powered by what it is that you really want. Harmony beats balance every time! It’s all about knowing how to Settle Smart.”
