Words from the Wise 37: Walt Disney
This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.
Walt Disney said:
“You should never neglect your family for business.”
Proteus Career Management says:
“If you don’t feel you thrive at work, you will take your problems home, often putting your family life at risk. It’s perhaps time to consider moving your career forward to achieve a better work-life balance.”
The lesson? “Review your career.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
Over a quarter of a century of talking to people about their careers allows me to say that the root cause of most unhappiness at work is the lack of balance between work and family life. Whilst most employers treat their employees well, some, as a friend of mine once said, “pay us for 8 hours a day, expect us to work for 12 and think they own us for 24 – and that’s close to slavery!” If any of this touches a nerve for you, then it’s time to consult your mentor or your mastermind group in order to review your career – where you are and where you are headed.
