Most people try to achieve a balance between their work and other aspects of their lives. Unfortunately, few people are able to do this.What are the main problems that people are facing and are there possible solutions?
In most developed cities, such as Shanghai and New York, busy professionals[ 此处为名词：职业人士”] find it difficult to juggle a career and private life [ juggle：同时应付，用法：juggle A and B]. In fact, the balance is not unachievable.
In general, the more time a worker spends on his or her job, the more the job pays. [前面的the more引导状语从句，后面的the more引导主句] It follows that [“结论是”] A person is likely to work long hours for better pay and accordingly have limited time or have no mood for the personal life or have no personal life at all. For example, the person may rarely have time to spend with family or friends or have the time for leisure or interests.
Some people may have pursuits[可数名词：追求] higher than financial gains[金钱（方面的）收益] . They may have work ethics[职业精神] that are too strong and thus incur[及物名词：造成] excessive expense of[对于xxx的花费] time on their work. This dramatically reduces their time spent on personal life. Doctors and police officers are most likely to be such people.
In terms of solving the problems, there are several ways. If people could be less obsessed with [着迷于] money, they may work less and allocate more of their time to[分配xxx给xxx] being with family and friends. At this point, they must be constantly reminded of [被提醒xxx] that. Also, employers could intervene[不及物名词：“（良性）介入/干预”] . They could ask their employees who are too fixated on[着迷于/ 纠结于] their work to rest properly. At some institutions or companies, time-off is compulsory[强制的] in order for staff to l/ad a balanced life.
Often, it is not the case that workers do not want work-life balance; instead, they may have no idea how to balance work and life. If this is the case, external[来在外部的] help or intervention[名词：（良性）介入/干预] is needed.
