Timeframe enforcement


When I’m on the road, I work 16 hours a day. There’s nothing else to do, and there’s plenty of work to be done. So I do it. My superior likes this. I don’t mind it, as long as I’m on the road.

When I’m home, it’s different. I need to restrict my hours so that 16 hours becomes 8 hours of work, and 8 hours of quality time with darling wife. I am not good at setting this boundary. My darling wife is VERY good at it. She will stand over me while I’m on a call and stare at me, letting me know that I have exceeded my allotted time for work, and I am now eating into HER time.

It’s very effective.

    This post’s brevity must indicate your wife wanted you to stop blogging for the day.

    We, your readers, understand.
