Heather, I don't think it's a 24/7 work culture as much as it is a 24/7 " I have to be doing something or i'll miss out on something" society. Parents do it to their kids by packing every day with things they "have to do" Problem is the kid never gets a chance to be a kid and the parents,by running their kid all over town, never get the important things done. Since when do we have to pack 48 hours into each and every day ? It's insane and impossible. And what happens is that instead of doing 5 things correctly, you end up doing 15 things poorly.
Thanks a lot. My wife read this earlier. I just asked her if she wanted to go play around and she says "It's not a priority!"
The 24/7 working culture that we live in today has turned “I’m too busy” into one of the most common excuses. Tracking your work week and logging your hours are great ways to investigate your true workload. I always think of H. Jackson Brown, Jr.’s quote, “Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” Spending a little less time surfing the internet and glued to our smart phones may be the key to freeing up our schedules!
