Maybe You Can Do Something About Work/Life Balance

I don’t think a day goes by without hearing at least a brief conversation about work/life balance. It is a subject on the mind of many who work, whether they own a business or just work in an organization of some kind. The rapid adoption of technologies like e-mail, texting, laptop and tablet computers have made us more productive.   But they have also made us more reachable, more hours of the day. All of this is occurring at a time when companies have discovered that technology enables existing staff to be more productive and therefore the company needs less people. All generations have probably had to deal with the increasing pressures of life. But you have to wonder if all the angst about balancing work with the rest of life has not gone up a notch or two faster in the last 10 years. For those of you who think there is not much you can do about it, help is on the way. You can access this article on the Mind Tools website and actually attack the problem and assess your current balance and then develop strategies to make it better.
