How To Achieve The Perfect Work-Life Balance

TRANSKRIP
Well you know, when you think about happiness and having your happiest life and then your happiness at work,
I mean, one reason that work matters a lot is you spend a lot of time at work.
And like a big part of most peoples day is spent doing their work.
And so if you’re not happy at work, it’s hard to be happy.
And also, work and at home I think for everyone,
it’s becoming more and more intertwined.
We don’t have that feeling of like,
oh my gosh it’s 5:00 p.m., I’m gonna put down my briefcase and be finished for the day.
We’re sort of always in work and then home you might be buying something online during your lunch hour.
So these boundaries are not clear.
And I think that for us to be our happiest at work and at home,
we have to really think through that.
Like, do I need to give myself specific slots of time when I am off duty,
when I don’t check my phone,
when I don’t feel like I should be doing work.
When I’m at work am I gonna close my door and for three hours be unavailable to anybody who’s not associated
with this one big project that I have.
And so, part of it is focus, part of it is, I think, using your time.
One thing that works for a lot of people is actually scheduling things.
It’s not like, oh, I’m going to go to the gym tomorrow,
it’s like I’m going to go to the gym at 10:00 a.m.,
whether that’s on a Friday or that’s on a Saturday.
Like when exactly do you want certain things to happen.
And when you do that, the advantage is, then you see that there’s not time for everything.
There’s only time for the things that are the most important.
And so some things will fall away.
And that probably what you need to have happen if you want to have a happy home life and a happy work life.

Well you know, when you think about happiness and having your happiest life and then your happiness at work,
Ketika kamu berpikir tentang bahagia dan memiliki hidup yang bahagia dan lalu bahagia di tempat kerja,

I mean, one reason that work matters a lot is you spend a lot of time at work.
satu alasan mengapa kerja itu penting adalah kamu menghabiskan waktu di tempat kerja.

And like a big part of most peoples day is spent doing their work.
Dan bagian besar dari hari orang-orang dihabiskan melakukan pekerjaan mereka.

And so if you’re not happy at work, it’s hard to be happy.
Dan jika kamu tidak bahagia di tempat kerja, sulit untuk bahagia.

And also, work and at home I think for everyone, it’s becoming more and more intertwined.
Dan juga, menurut saya pekerjaan dan rumah bagi orang-orang sekarang menjadi lebih jalin-menjalin.

We don’t have that feeling of like, oh my gosh it’s 5:00 p.m., I’m gonna put down my briefcase and be finished for the day.
Kita tidak lagi berpikir, ya ampun sudah jam 5 sore, aku akan meletakkan tas kerjaku dan selesai kerja.

We’re sort of always in work and then home you might be buying something online during your lunch hour.
Kita seperti selalu bekerja dan di rumah, kamu mungkin membeli sesuatu daring ketika jam makan siangmu.

So these boundaries are not clear.
Jadi batas-batas ini tidak jelas.

And I think that for us to be our happiest at work and at home, we have to really think through that.
Dan saya pikir supaya kita paling bahagia di tempat kerja dan di rumah, kita harus memikirkan batas-batas itu.

Like, do I need to give myself specific slots of time when I am off duty,
Seperti, apa saya perlu memberi waktu khusus ketika saya tidak bekerja,

when I don’t check my phone,
ketika saya tidak mengecek ponsel saya,

when I don’t feel like I should be doing work.
ketika saya merasa tidak ingin melakukan tugas kerja.

When I’m at work am I gonna close my door and for three hours be unavailable to anybody who’s not associated
with this one big project that I have.
Ketika saya di tempat kerja, apakah saya akan menutup pintu dan selama tiga jam tidak tersedia bagi siapapun yang tidak ada hubungan dengan proyek besar yang sedang saya lakukan.

And so, part of it is focus, part of it is, I think, using your time.
Jadi, sebagian adalah fokus, dan sebagian lagi, menurut saya, adalah menggunakan waktumu.

One thing that works for a lot of people is actually scheduling things.
Satu hal yang efektif bagi banyak orang adalah membuat jadwal.

It’s not like, oh, I’m going to go to the gym tomorrow,
Bukan, oh aku akan ke gim besok,

it’s like I’m going to go to the gym at 10:00 a.m.,
tapi aku akan pergi ke gim jam 10 pagi.

whether that’s on a Friday or that’s on a Saturday.
apakah itu di hari Jumat atau Sabtu.

Like when exactly do you want certain things to happen.
Kapan tepatnya kamu ingin sesuatu terjadi.

And when you do that, the advantage is, then you see that there’s not time for everything.
Dan ketika kamu melakukan itu, keuntungannya adalah, kamu akan melihat bahwa tidak ada waktu untuk semua hal.

There’s only time for the things that are the most important.
Hanya ada waktu untuk hal-hal yang paling penting.

And so some things will fall away.
Dan lalu beberapa hal lain akan berguguran.

And that probably what you need to have happen if you want to have a happy home life and a happy work life.
Dan itu mungkin yang perlu terjadi kalau kamu ingin memiliki hidup rumah yang bahagia dan hidup kerja yang bahagia.
