I think this work-life balance issue worth us to take note also.
Many of times we are caught in the rat race, family commitment to make more money, inflation pressure, expensive living standard etc... that we have no choice but to engage into this kind of work life. Otherwise we may be dropped out due to stiff competition.
But this will greatly affect our health due to work stress, irregular meals, unbalanced diet and lack of exercise and sleeping.
Hence, Making a right choice is more important than working hard. When you have choose the right direction, then only you put on your hard work, the results will be awesome!
When we have a choice to choose our desired lifestyle, which one will you choose?
Stressed work life with more money but lacking of time and health to enjoy the fruits of success?
Ultimate Freedom Lifestyle which consists of Financial Freedom (continuous cash flow even when you retire), Time Freedom and Health freedom (free of diseases)?
The choice is on your hand. Make your life meaningful and fruitful by making the right choice to lead the lifestyle that you desire.
