Do you enjoy a good work-life balance?
Americans leave over 600 million hours of vacation on the table every year – plus we get less vacation time than workers do in any other developed country.
Kitty and I find this pretty appalling, and we’re trying hard not to be part of these statistics.
The problem is, it’s hard to overcome earlier Puritan-work-ethic conditioning. . .
It seemed like the right thing to talk about in our final episode of 2018. So enjoy this discussion, and some of the strategies we employ for keeping a good work-life balance. (Or at least, trying to.)
We’ll be back after the holidays.
