Do you Work to Live or Live to Work?

Has your life slowed down for the summer?
Have you managed to fit in some quality time with friends and family or headed off for some well earned R&R?
I hope you’re taking a little time to look after yourself and prepare for your next adventure.
Here at Less Ordinary Towers, things seem to have been more hectic than ever.  We’re expecting our first child in December which is super exciting, but is already causing some sleepless nights (as the bump grows).
This also necessitates a relocation to accommodate the new arrival – so a summer of talking to estate agents, lawyers, surveyors etc. etc.
On top of that, we’ve been extraordinarily busy with a stream of new clients ready to take on their big career challenges and start amazing businesses.
It was very appropriate that last week I was invited to the studios of the Guardian newspaper to debate the question “Should you work to live or live to work?”.
It’s a great question for you to ask yourself.  To listen to the podcast click the link below (my interview starts around 13 minutes in).
Given everything that going on, I’m not sure exactly of the answer for me!  I do know that work should bring excitement, challenge and fulfillment and add to your quality of life, and that is what Less Ordinary Living is all about.

    What about you? Do you live to work or work to live right now? What would be ideal?

    I’m a fan of treating work as an expression of self and blending the lines between work and life.
