Should we change the words “work life balance”

The words “work life balance” may need to be changed perhaps as it implies “work” is not “life” which it is.

Maybe more accurately is a “balance between human doing vs human being”.

Human doing = zooming in, judging, and taking action.

Human being = zooming out, observing without judgement and simply perceiving to gather more data perhaps.

Too much doing without being leads to doing without clarity.

Too much being/observing without doing leads to little impact.

The right combination of doing and being leads to “flow” perhaps.  

 In “flow”, we may have more sustainable energy to go for a long time without burnout.
