Summary:
The speaker used himself as an example, and shared his insight about work-life balance. He mentioned that
some jobs/careers are fundamentally incompatible with raising a young family. It is not going to be solved
by the usual common approach, such as wearing geans on Friday. Second, companies/governement are not
designed to solve this problem. They are driven by other things. Third, we need a time frame to strike
balance. Lastly, the speaker encouraged the audience to begin with small things in life and approach balance
in a balanced way by taking all aspects of life into account.
