BLOG - Working 9 to 5

BLOG - Working 9 to 5?

Is it time to kick the 9 to 5 habit?

New technology enables us to work from anywhere at anytime. So shouldn't more businesses make a break with the past?

Mornings are busy times in my household. With two pre-school children to deal with and both myself and my wife working full-time, there's plenty going on. Like most parents, we don't need alarm clocks; we have two human ones that start to chirp at 7am and sometimes much earlier. But we're the lucky ones. I have worked as a freelancer since before they were born and my wife works from home most days. There's no 7.53 train for either of us to catch. Some mornings I can write 800 words before breakfast, other times I can look after the kids while my wife makes an early start. Our days have flexibility, if they didn't we'd be poorer both financially and time-wise.

BLOG - Are you missing out on life

BLOG - Are you missing out on life?

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

“Yeah…Uh huh…Uh huh…Yeah…No way! Uh huh.”

This was the response I got when talking to a friend the other day. I could tell he wasn’t really listening, because he was browsing Facebook at the time.

Why was his smartphone more important than me? It didn’t used to be this way.

I know I’m at risk of sounding out-of-touch and technophobic. But I really do think this is a much bigger problem than we perceive.

We’re talking about our lives here. Do we really want to dedicate them to an iPhone?
