Remember To Celebrate Go Home On Time Day

Today is Go Home On Time Day, a chance to recognise that we often work insane hours and make ourselves far too available to our corporate overlords. Life shouldn't be solely about work.

The infographic below highlights another important issue: while many of us feel overworked, there are also people who would like more work. Either way, striking a balance is important -- not just today, but every day.

Go Home On Time Day


    I used to be chronic at overworking. But one of my managers gave me some advice, look after your own company first. Now I put my family and myself before my job. When I walk out that door I am off the clock, don't even bother trying to contact me. I am a marketing manager not a surgeon, nothing is urgent enough that it can't wait until tomorrow.

    i've had a few late nights the last few weeks, 10:45 being the latest last thursday. will be keen to take this on board today!

    Too bad this doesn't happen in hospitality! When im running a wedding, im there from 10am till 4am, two to three times a week. It gets a bit galling!

    Well.... now it's ironic, Go Home On Time Day, but my train lost power, then the train I needed also lost power so although I finished school earlier than usual that day, I ended up home one hour later than usual.
