"Very nice," commented a third.

Earlier, in a post, Alagh mentioned how founders of Infosys, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Reddit "believe that work-life balance does not exist for people building businesses." Then, she shared her own view of the concept.

She wrote, "The work-life balance debate arises from misunderstanding what it really is. Instead of viewing it as a rigid concept, we need to recognise that work-life balance is created, not found. It's a subjective term that varies based on one's aspirations, priorities, and stage in life. What may seem like an ideal balance to one person could be completely off for another."

She further added, "Some might choose to balance it on a day-to-day basis. Someone else can choose to balance over a week by stretching on weekdays and chilling on weekends. Others can choose to balance it over a decade, where they stretch for seven years and take a sabbatical for three years."
