Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is busy bringing you all kinds of new devices and apps to infuse everything you do with computer-aided intelligence: Using a personal assistant (Cortana) to manage your calendar, having chat bots interact with you on the internet, using the HoloLens virtual reality glasses to impose a 3D virtual world onto your real world.
Yet, when it comes to balancing work with family and personal life, he doesn't think our obsession with our devices is helping. He doesn't believe in work/life "balance" but in in work/life harmony, he tells Business Insider.
"There's no such thing as balance. It's how do I harmonize my work and my life?" he says. We all spend tons of time at work and thinking about work, so it's important that our work be meaningful and fit in with our core values. But when it comes to spending time with the family, we all need to focus less on our phones and more on the real world.
That means not thinking about "the last email," you got from work, he tells Business Insider. But it also means putting down that phone and paying full attention to your family and friends.
