Work life balance is something that I take seriously. My typical weekday work hours are as follows:
- 8 – 8:30am at home
- 9:30 – 6pm at office
- 9 – 10:30pm at home
I usually work 5-10 hours over the weekend.
In addition, I have the following goals, which I do a good job of keeping:
- No more than two business trips per quarter
- No more than an average of one evening business event per week
- No more than an average of one morning business event per week
This week has been more hectic than a typical week due to holiday parties and events. Generally, setting up these rules makes it easy for me to make sure I maintain the work life balance I’ve chosen. My advice, especially if you have a spouse, is to do something similar so that both people are on the same page.
