This book is discussing the term: work-life balance, one of the major issues plaguing human potential in the corporate world today. The term was first introduced twenty years ago and is likely to go down as one of the great corporate blunders of our time. The future of an organization and the potential of its employees are intertwined; their destinies are linked. However, the work-life balance that has dominated the corporate landscape for almost two decades implies that work and life are separate. In this way, we set them against each other, and the thought that follows is that you’re either working too much and living too little or vice versa. The term itself diminishes our ability to make the case that work can be a richly rewarding part of a person’s life.

most of the time, living a life that’s deeply satisfying requires a strategy, daily attention, self-awareness, and discipline.
Companies should help their employees by providing a comprehensive system that drives personal and professional satisfaction.
Too often pleasure and satisfaction are confused. But the fundamental difference is that pleasure cannot be sustained beyond the activity producing it.
Virtue is the ultimate organizing principle for your life, your family, an organization, a country, or all of humanity.
The best way to live is with self-control. Without it we’re rendered incapable of any sustainable success in life, business, or relationships.
Identifying our priorities is indispensable if we’re to enjoy sustained periods of satisfaction in our lives.
