One of my team mates shared a quote he saw on Reddit and it’s been tumbling around in my brain all week.
“20 years from now, the only people who will remember that you worked late are your kids”
We had a particularly difficult week at work where there has been a round of layoffs. I’ve been fortunate that no one on my team was affected however a lot of great people are now looking for a new job.
Times like this remind me that work is just the thing you do to be able to provide for your life but it should never be your life.
