We all work to be paid; there’s no question about it. But there is more to work than just a paycheck. We seek more than just a bi-weekly deposit in our checking accounts. We’re seeking value, balance, and happiness- three things that sometimes are under-communicated in interviews, nonexistent in some work environments, and harder to achieve than they should be.
Ladies and gents, we are truly, madly, and totally fried. We have been plugged in and going non-stop. Our eyes are on screens for the majority of our days and nights. When invites come up, we say yes more than we say no. We go and go and go. When we stop, we are only doing so to catch a breath but not fully recovering from overextending ourselves.
