It’s Time: Find Alignment & Abandon Work-Life Balance

Speakers

Dawna Ballard

The University of Texas at Austin

Time is not a problem to be solved: It is a relationship (among ourselves, our work, and others) to cultivate. Nurturing the relationship among these deeply interdependent parts, and the collective rhythm they impart to our lives, supports our healthy alignment. This offers us greater resilience and an economy of action that comes with “good form.” Moving beyond balance or simple productivity, this session focuses on finding alignment—even amidst great personal and professional upheaval. Drawing from recent research in chronemics, the study of time in communication, our alignment relies upon three equally important activities described in this session:  1) Pacing: Find it.  2) Recovery: Don’t fake it.  3) Practice: Keep at it (but gently and with great humor).
