part of a series on Symmetry


About the speaker

What does it mean to you to have balance and symmetry in your life and work? How will you know when you’ve achieved it? And, more importantly, who decided what the ideal life symmetry should look like?

Join us as we unpack and rethink cultural norms and assumptions about creativity, work and time—all with the aim of re-imagining the ever elusive work-life balance conundrum. We’ll dive into the historical, anthropological, and neuroscientific origins of this issue. We’ll explore how this “work-life balance" conundrum translates to people with creative pursuits and in creative fields. And we’ll end this fast-paced lecture with a simple, human-friendly framework to assess and redesign your own game plan for a new kind of life symmetry.
