We spend a majority of our lives working, therefore work and life are not separated.

What kind of life do you want to have?

In the past there has always been a clear distinction between a person’s work and their personal life. A person would leave work at 5pm and drive home and they would push work out of their minds so they could focus on other things.

Nowadays that clear distinction isn’t there, the lines are blurring between work and life. We hear people talking about work-life balance and work-life integration. But the truth is, work is life and life is work. We spend a majority of our adult lives working, which means what you do is not just a job, or a career--it’s a part of you.

We have to do a better job of blending our work and life together into one instead of splitting them up. If you don’t like how an organization is treating you, if you hate the projects you are working on, if you are miserable where you are at, it’s time for you to take control and to build the life you want to have. Don’t just sit back and think you can wait it out because the pay is decent, your work is your life.

You have to look at it from the perspective that this is not just a business, a career, a job or work. This is you! You have to ask yourself, what kind of life do you want to have and how do you build it for yourself?

I don’t think that’s a choice employees get to make. Employers have decided for you jobs that follow you home deserve more pay.

Maybe if you're shit at it. I wfh 3 days a week and literally do nothing except answer the occasional call or email in that time and still have great evaluations. 36 hours on paper, 12-15 in reality. Git gud.

People spend more time working than with their families. Quite sad.

based but if that's the case they're going to eventually realize they don't need you.

Seems unlikely since I'm the financial controller and tell management what we do and don't have money for kek.

Some smart people once said 'work makes you free'. It was a very catchy slogan for their summer camps.
