How often do you use the phrase “I’m seeking a work-life balance?” Many of us use it quite frequently. But what if you were told that this balance is actually a myth? Instead of obsessing over finding the perfect balance, what if we injected a little play into our lives and unlocked a whole new world of insights, habits, and ways of doing things?
In today’s episode, Anil and Ashish sit down with Aaron McHugh who is going to enlighten us on this topic. Aaron is a writer, podcaster, adventurer, author, and a true advocate for finding fulfillment in one’s career. He has authored the book Fire Your Boss and hosts the podcast ‘Work Life Play.’ Aaron also leads experiential weekends called “Reboot Your Life” and is a sought-after speaker, playing a significant role in driving cultural transformations across North America.
Aaron shares his personal story of realizing that no matter how hard he tried, he could never achieve the perfect balance in his life. It was only through a complete ‘reboot,’ that he discovered a new vision for his life and a new narrative. He found a third rhythm, a recurring pattern of movement where work, life, and play could coexist harmoniously within the fabric of each day. Now, his mission is to share this profound discovery with as many people as possible.
Aaron also explores various fascinating topics including valuing oneself, finding rest amidst the daily hustle, and integrating play into our lives as adults. He also provides insightful tips on how to prioritize play and rewire for happiness.
