In many ways, working and finding work today is harder today than under the old paradigm.
That was the paradigm, best epitomized by Henry Ford, who said "Why is it that every time I ask for a pair of hands, a head comes attached." Yea, Henry said that.
It was a time of assembly line, mass product pushing and profit maximizing. People were appendages to the machine. Fitted to a Harness. A node on someone else's network. Easily swapped out when necessary. Henry's quip made sense then. That paradigm had us all staring at one single issue (the economic bottom line). We stared and stared, while we slashed and burned - the environment, people, companies.
You could say that it was a Crime against Humanity.
Even though much has changed in the world of work, we're still spending 50% of our entire lives inside organizations. It can be better. It should be better - after all, this is the place where economic, emotional, individual, group, physical, and intellectual lines all intersect!
Don't be fooled. Our lives and careers are not separate. Neither are they "held in a balance". These days, it's more of a blend - and the challenge is to optimize the blend. Improving the work / life experience requires science - we should use solid 21st century tools and follow best practices. And it requires art. You will want mentoring from someone who is mature and has navigated their own personal / career changes fairly well.
