Why the ‘Wheel of Life’ is a bad model

Contrary to some teaching, life just doesn’t run like a bicycle wheel and the idea of ‘life balance’ or ‘work-life balance’ needing to have equality in all areas is in truth a recipe for disaster.

Life isn’t like that, all things are not meant to be ‘equal’, plotting your life on a ‘wheel’ and making it perfectly round so it works as a wheel sounds as though it should make sense. It may well make logical ‘left-brain’ sense and might well work for an android, but not for you and I.

In this video I explain the ‘four domains’ of life and why the choice of ‘balance’ is yours.
