I’m in crunch mode right now, that dreaded time that inevitably comes on every project where you have to stay head down, nose to the grindstone to make everything work.
I am in that mode in a serious way, so I thought I’d share my “How to know you’re spending way too much time at work” list.
Without further ado (because I don’t have much time) …
You know you’re spending too much time at work when:
1. Your 13-year-old sings the background tunes to the conference call music he hears on speakerphone eight hours a day.
2. The dark circles you’re sporting under your eyes these days look like they’re becoming permanent.
3. You spend more time with your work partner than you do with your life partner.
4. A 10:30 p.m. conference call sounds like a perfectly reasonable request.
