"When Your Personal Life Leaks Into Work" (Creator's Block, Ep. 72)
By Liz Murphy
Marcella and I are back with a brand new episode. This week, we're answering a very important question:
What do you do when your personal life starts to negatively impact work?
We're not talking about having a bad hair day or spilling coffee on yourself before you get to work. We're referring to much more serious instances -- issues at home, a death or medical emergency in the family, etc.
It's a particularly challenging issue given that work has become more all-consuming for recent generations. (Thanks to the internet -- and the fact that many of us often find ourselves collaborating with folks in different time zones -- I end up doing work at all hours.)
So, what do you do when your life goes sideways? How do you continue to deliver as a top performer, when you're struggling to stay focused?
In this very personal episode, we go deep with tactical takeaways on how to take care of yourself, without tarnishing your reputation as a reliable team player.
Listen to the Episode
What We Talked About
- When should you take time off work and for how long?
