Work-Life Balance As A Creative

Can there be a balance between your work, your family and your life? If you work in the creative industry and struggle with work/life balance, you are not alone. Motion design veteran, Robert Hranitzky, talks with Chris about the perks and perils of striking a balance between your love of work and your love for life and family.

Before kids, life as a creative professional was a whole other reality for Robert. He, like many other creatives, worked around the clock. For 15 years, he hustled hard, worked late nights, and dedicated a lot of his time to his craft.

Now, as a father, husband, and business owner, Robert has to be a little more conscientious of how he spends his time. After his first child was born, his perspective on the important things in life shifted immediately. What he was responsible for prior to his baby’s birth—whatever wasn’t family-related—became secondary.

Time is the most valuable resource each one of us shares. How we choose to spend our time impacts our lives in significant ways. For Robert, much of his time went into creating the most pixel-perfect, visually stunning animations—burning the midnight oil, and hardly giving himself the time to relax.

But becoming a father changed all of that. The way Robert looks at time has changed tremendously. Seeing it as a precious, fleeting resource, Robert found the time to be there for any major moments with his family.

To be clear, the hustle hasn’t totally dissipated. It’s still present in Robert’s work, but rather than hustling his days away, he limits the grind only to his working hours.

Both Robert and his wife work together to make sure they’re dedicating time to be with their kids, themselves, and their work in a way that’s healthy, approachable, and rewarding.

Listen to the full episode to learn how Robert makes the most of his time to balance his work and family life.
