Why You Should Not Always Make Better Choices (At Work)

Make better choices at work

If you can shoot to be in the office at the most productive times, you will earn the respect of your colleagues and superiors alike.

Old Right Choice: Stay in touch on your off hours.

New Wisdom: When smart phones and other mobile devices made it easier to telecommute, constant contact became the new norm. Unfortunately, many people have ended up being in constant contact with their offices, even when they do not want to be.

If you feel as though you should always be in touch with your workplace – even to the detriment or your family or work life balance – you may need to reevaluate the choices you are making.

If your colleagues and superiors have grown accustomed to you being available for work at all hours of the day or night, it may seem daunting to take a step back.

Still, it is definitely worth it. Ask to meet with your team or superiors and let them know that you need to redefine your boundaries between work and home life.
