Today is a great example of tech:

Early am call for European customers.
A couple of calls for in progress programs
Cancel calls because I can, and need a thinking break. Walk outside. Nap.
Take 2 more easy calls to check in on team progress
End at a reasonable time before 5 to go hang out in the good weather

Most days are this chill.

M1 - absolutely not sharing those details.

I used to work in consulting as an SM and on good days could get to something somewhat similar. I think it’s all about how you manage your time and others perceptions.

Not a walk in the park on my end- Morning is heads down on making edits / updates to requests that came through overnight from other time zones 9-12. 12-7 is back to back meetings. Pause for dinner / exercise and then get a few more hours in. Time zones are a challenge so pings are coming in 24/7. So prob around 50-60 overall with high intensity but definitely lots of flexibility for how I structure my day
