I was 34 in the last few days. Being at the age where you have had a driving licence for 16 years and nearly been in employment as long as you were at school is slightly bizarre. This weekend i came across this article telling me that I'm now just just months away from supposedly being the age that we should all act while at work. I’m not sure about that, the pressure is on, you might have to ask my work colleagues…uh oh.
Work-Life balance is a tough one and we are all striving for that perfect mid ground. It’s just something that we all need to be extremely conscious of and dedicate time each week, month, year to making improvements in each facet of our lives.
More holidays I say!
In the workforce, always act like you are 35 A recruiter gave me this advice some years ago. It is quite inspired. What she meant was, when you are young in the workplace, don’t act as a novice. If you are smart and competent, step up and do whatever you are capable of doing in a mature way. Similarly, when you are an older worker, don’t act like it. Approach your day with youthful energy. To quote a famous Frank Sinatra song: “You’re 35 and it’s a very good year”.
