You know the analogy of rocks in a jar – how you should fill your life with the most important things (rocks) first, then add the things that matter less (sand)? If you’re thinking about work-life integration as a concept for the first time, that in essence is the principle behind it.
Of course, in an profession modelled on the military, we’re taught that all those rocks can only be of one shape and colour. We have to ask ourselves honestly: how well has that worked for us chefs?
If you would like guidance on choosing what matters most to you, please send me a DM and we can schedule a 30-minute conversation to help you find clarity.
