Today’s Time Clock

June 6th, 2012 by Deb McLean

 “Back in the Day” when your parents’ or grandparents’ work day was done, it was done.  When the inbox was empty, when the forms were processed or the whistle blew, you could stop.  They didn’t take work home with them.

Today, it’s never done.  There’s always one more tweet to make, FB post to write, text or email you can respond to. And your emails are always in your pocket on your iPhone, Blackberry or Droid.  It’s not 9 to 5 anymore. You are rarely completely off the clock.

I truly respect the “Greatest Generation” and the sacrifices they made for our country.  Yes, they also worked hard.  I just think the work ethic of today’s professional sometimes gets a bad rap.  Today’s professional is always on the clock. It’s important however to create balance.  Balance with your home life, physical well-being and spiritual well-being.

Make sure you take the time to punch out.
