If you’re striving for a good work / life balance there are a couple schools of thought.

Amanda Abella at Care2 wrote the article, Why Work Life Balance Doesn’t Exist, saying that:

Work life balance became a major buzz word in the health and lifestyle community because people felt like they had to find ways to handle stress…The reason so many fail at work life balance is because they try to cram their activities into a perfectly balanced schedule…The point is the life is fluid. Nothing is ever the same. By trying to “balance” our lives into equal parts we’re working against that.

On the other hand, The Independent’s Antonia Molloy is reporting that A quarter of UK professionals are unhappy with their work-life

At the end of January, a few of folks from VoIP Supply went down to Miami for ITEXPO East.

Just being able to escape the Buffalo snow for a few days would have made the trip nice enough.

Face it, when you’re on a conference call you’re either zoning out to enjoy a few moments of meditation or you’re doing something else entirely.

The Harvard Business Review article, What People Are Really Doing When They’re on a Conference Call, explains that, “It turns out many U.S. employees would rather do just about anything rather than listen intently to their coworkers from a remote location.”
