Monday Musing: The Myth of Downshifting


There are several schools of thought on how to achieve a better work/life balance. Some of those schools ask us to actively slow down, downshift and keep working at a lower level focus while spending time with those we love. These always-on theories of work come with all sorts of unintended consequences.

If you're working with the proper focus, boundaries and purpose do you need to downshift? Or can you achieve what you want to achieve in your work and have the ability to completely stop and spend quality time with family and friends?

Jeff explores these questions in the context of his own life in this edition of Monday Musing.
