20 Inspiring Quotes On Work-Life Balance By Successful Women

Posted on

A lot of debate exists around what the phrase “work-life balance” actually means. Many opt for other terms that more accurately describe their definition like, “work-life integration” or “work-life alignment.” Regardless of what you call it, having a clear definition of what work-life balance looks like and means to you is essential. However, I know the idea of sitting down and mapping out the vision can feel a bit overwhelming, so to help jumpstart your brainstorming session, here are 20 quotes from successful women on the topic:

1. “We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in.” – Arianna Huffington

2. “Don’t confuse having a career with having a life.” – Hillary Clinton

3. “The work-life balance is a harsh reality for so many women, who are forced every day to make impossible choices. Do they take their kids to the doctor…and risk getting fired? Do they work weekends so they can afford to send their kids to better childcare…even though it means even less time with their families? Do they take another shift at work, so they can pay for piano lessons for their kids…even though it means they have to stop volunteering for the PTA? It just shouldn’t be this difficult to raise healthy families.” – Michelle Obama
