Leave Work at 5:30? (WATCH!)

11 Apr

I just happened upon this, while on Mashable. It’s pretty impressive that this woman is willing to stand publicly and say she’s leaving work, but then again, when did things get so competitive and so relentless that leaving work at the close of business was something we had to fight for or be ashamed of, anyway?

Work/life balance is an important part of being a professional. It’s an important part of being human. With the demands on people to impress, over-achieve and over-index on the success-o-meter, having a family (or even a life) outside of work, get more and more complicated.

Balance is healthy. Being able to achieve greatness professionally, while maintaining a successful personal life (especially when children are involved) may be hard to do, but in my opinion, it should never be looked down on.

That said, this is a pretty cool video from Facebook’s COO… too bad the embed code’s not functioning correctly… maybe someone left work on time to be with their kids though, so click the link and don’t be lazy.
