I’m pretty sick of the work-life balance argument. It’s not one or the other. Or sublime balance all the time. It’s flexibility how and when you want it, understanding that working less may mean earning less. But it’s your choice. Read my latest Forbes post “Forget Work-Life Balance: Give Us Choices Instead.” I’d also love if you added your comments here and/or on the Forbes site–this is such an important topic for women and men.
Dear Sender, Thanks for your email. I am out of the office until January 3. That’s right. I work so hard and am so important to this company that I haven’t taken any vacation this year. So now it’s December 22 and I have four weeks to use. Since I work 24/7, taking the next 13 days is like taking four weeks.
