The engaged, consultant maximizes her time, so that she is working on her business, rather than in her business.
This is the difference between a job and an entrepreneurial venture.
Or even, dare I say the difference between golden chains and a golden ticket.
There are spaces between responsibilities to family, meetings, and other gaps in our lives that can be maximized for the greatest level of productivity.
But that’s not work/life balance.
That kind of balance is not attainable.
There’s only maximizing as much productivity and gaps as possible, and then hoping for the best.
The work of an entrepreneur is to minimize the level of risk in her project: To codify and commoditize the process, the product and even the productivity.
Work/life integration is more attainable than work/life balance, which is the Holy Grail of all entrepreneurial ventures.
