Yet another busy weekend. My sister in law is pregnant and my wife was in charge of the baby shower, which means I was helping 🙂 We had a blast doing all the food for the shower and it turned out really good.
On somewhat of the same subject, you really have to find a balance in your life in order to enjoy yourself and be happy. If you work too much and play too little, you will end up hating your everyday life and only looking forward to the weekends, which usually are just used to unwind and instead of being productive in your home life.
On the other hand, if you play too much and never get anything done at work, or don’t work at all..well, you will probably end up back in your parents basement 🙂
So my pick this week goes to Eliminate The Muda’s post on Work-Life Balance. He discusses a newer way to get things done at work, called ROWE, or Reward Oriented Work Environment. It’s a pretty cool, though somewhat radical system, where you work as much as you have to, to get things done, as long as things do get done. Those that don’t get things done get canned, and the ones that do enjoy great flexibility in their workplace and productivity actually rises, according to the studies. Jump on over and check it out, a very interesting read.
Other great stuff this past week:
- Peak Personal Finance discusses another part of the balance of life, Healthcare, talking about options under the new healthcare bill
- Darwin’s Finance talks about a very interesting investment idea, Investing in Movie Futures
- And a little on some expenses that feel like they never end from Money Reason’s
