Let's redefine work <> life balance:
Work = time that makes you money 📈
Life = time that costs you money📉
Balance = spending time on things you love to do, regardless whether it costs or makes you money. ⚖️
So happiness isn't whether you are working too much or too little. That's what defines profitability.
Happiness is when you are balanced in life. Which can only come from spending time doing things you love. Which ideally make you money.
And as for me...
I love cooking. ❤️
