In my 9-5 career as an instructional designer, specific principles guide my work to ensure I design effective learning experiences.

I began wondering

What if I applied these same principles to the art of work-life integration?

Here's what I know

In instructional design (ID), the focus is on creating effective and engaging learning experiences. In addition to that basic foundation, I continued thinking about the connection between instructional design and work-life integration.

The more I thought about this idea, the more I realized how much our lives, like a well-designed curriculum, could benefit from the same level of intention and structured planning.

It's not just about the hours we work or the tasks we juggle; it's about designing a life where our professional work and personal aspirations are not at odds, but in harmony.

Each day would then feel like a step towards more satisfaction, not just a checkbox in a never-ending to-do list.
