Dealing with the Myth of the Work-Life Balance

Language: English
Event Type: Online

Most, if not all, IT professionals have bought into the idea of work-life balance the moment they've accepted their first job in the industry. We've succumbed to the realities of carrying a  pager, responding to emails with our smart phones, working during the weekends and burning the midnight oil to get the next big IT project rolled out. This, coupled with fighting fires on a regular basis makes us feel that we need to get a life and wait for the next scheduled vacation getaway.

In this session, learn about the P.D.A. Principle that Edwin discovered after losing most of his hair from too much stress.  As a fourth generation workaholic, Edwin decided to embark on a journey to discover the secrets of highly productive professionals while keeping stress levels to a minimum. We'll ditch the idea of work-life balance, focus on what's really important and regain control of our lives.
