I heard an interesting quote the other day. A commentator was quoting a Brit on the subject of socialism (no, this won't be political). The Brit said Americans make lousy socialists because we are defined by our work. Where other societies work until they've done a day's worth of work, we take ours with us, especially those of us who work from home (or the road).

Things to think about from this article: define non-work hours, time for yourself; create time to clear your mind; get your work done during work time (at the office, if you have one).

This is not just about work/life balance. It's about recognizing we need to recharge to be more effective when we are working.
