In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter Voogd breaks down why he hates the idea of "balance" between your work and home life. "Balance" implies a division between the two -- so that when you're home, you shouldn't be working, and vice versa. For Voogd, it's important to do what you love. So, there shouldn't be a problem slipping in some work activities on a vacation, or during an off-day, if you want to do it.

You never know when an opportunity will come along, or what might have been once you miss it. A single conversation could change the course of your life, which is why Voogd tries to explore every opportunity -- from spontaneous business trips to chats with strangers at the end of a long day.
