Abstract

“Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create” - Jana Kingsford.

In the ever-changing landscape of the modern workplace, where the demands of career and personal life intertwine, a pressing need arises for a nuanced exploration of the delicate balance between work-life and the pursuit of professional growth. As we delve into the dynamic interplay of these elements and strive to advance in our careers, we often grapple with the daunting need to achieve work-life harmony. While it is true that work-life balance can be greatly influenced by organisational policies that support individuals in achieving a healthy equilibrium between personal and professional life, employees themselves also play a crucial role by taking a proactive approach to defining boundaries to maintain a balance that works for them (Boundary Theory). This article embarks on a journey to outline some boundary management strategies that support individuals in progressing in their careers and navigating personal life milestones with resilience.
