Be a leader in business – with a life!
By Michael Skapinker
It is not possible to achieve a balance between work and life if you want to do well in business. To reduce only your workload will fail because in real life success in work depends on achieving targets. In a competitive business environment, leadership takes different qualities and skills – including commitment, passion, and of course a lot of time.

A work–life balance is not just about people wanting to leave the office at a reasonable time – they know that they have to compete against those who are prepared to work until the early hours, on the other side of the world. Take Pavan Vishnakarma, a freelance software developer who lives in Bhopal, for instance. He advertises himself as being available for work at any time.

The answer is surely to look for balance across our whole lives, rather than at any particular time. Life is about deciding what is important to you – and sometimes making hard decisions. There are periods when we want to devote ourselves to work and others when the family is more important.

It’s not that a work–life balance isn’t worth having. It certainly is. _______________ 11. This is that you are not going to rise as high in the organisation or be as rich as those business leaders who have no interest in a work–life balance. _______________ 12. However, if you are the sort of person who, faced with a choice between a school play and a crucial meeting, chooses the play, you will fall behind. _______________ 13.

Show me a successful Chief Executive and I will show_you someone who barely_sees his/her children. _______________ 14. We can’t. Those who spend more time with their family and friends will be richer in the ways that really matter. _______________ 15.
