How does everyone feel about establishing boundaries at work for work life balance?

What are you even trying to ask here? I feel good about it.


Employees have the advantage at the moment, don’t take advantage of it. Do good work, not long work. This is the way. Find ways to be the most efficient version of yourself and don’t tell anyone.
Share small things to give others small efficiencies to build rapport. Otherwise work well, not long.


I just go to sleep.


I feel good about it as well


Meant to ask - how do you establish boundaries at work? Do you tell yourself you won’t work past a certain time if things aren’t urgent?

I keep my head down and don’t bother anybody. They return the favor.


I have meetings on my calendar—-one from 7-8am and another from 5-6-30pm with a subject of “family time”… my boss knows I’m 100% available if it’s something urgent. But, this keeps PMs from throwing random meetings on my calendar during these times.
