No More 9 to 5
The typical work day is gone.
There is no such thing as clocking in and clocking out unless your stuck in an industry that is still trying to live in the Industrial Revolution… and that’s not gonna last for long.
Life is not as compartmentalized as it used to be and many of us are still trying to figure out how to operate in this new reality.
Everything goes with us everywhere. You get your email, twitter, facebook, stock reports, etc on your phone any minute of the day. You can access information worldwide at the click of a button or a tap on an iPad.
Work doesn’t shut off after work hours and family doesn’t quit calling during work time.
It all intersects and the successful will figure out how to operate in this new reality.
Better yet, great employers will learn how to lead in this new reality.
Life and work blend now more than ever.
So how do you navigate it?
Working 24/7 seems to be the new reality. How do we disconnect? Can companies expect you to pick up your phone and e-mails at all hours of the day and night?
Where do we draw the lines between work and family?
