Knowing when to turn off

An interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald by Lucinda Schmidt looks at the importance of knowing when you've done enough shedworking and you should go and do something else instead. Most of the piece is an interview with life-work balance expert Linda Duxbury who says she works 55 to 60 hours a week but has strict rules to separate her work and family life, never working at weekends or holidays, taking regular long weekends with her family, never using a BlackBerry or mobile phone and never answering calls during dinner. Although she doesn't say anything about lunch. Well worth a browse.

  1. Best advice
    From my dad: If people walk all over you, whose fault is it - theirs for walking on you or yours for lying there? I don't put up with crap.

    Cor, I love this woman. Thank you!
