The Take Back Your Time People Don’t Even Have Enough Time

Posted by on June 20 at 17:44 PM

There is no hope for the rest of us to get control of our work-life balance if the people launching the national campaign to help us get control of our work-life balance no longer seem to have control of their work-life balance. I got this sad email this morning: “National coordinators John de Graaf and Gretchen Burger have kept this campaign going on fumes for years but can’t anymore without all of us pitching in.”

OK, so it’s not actually that they’re tired or overworked, but that the campaign is underpaid. They’re in need of financial support. I happen to like what they do, or I would like it if I had time to think about it. In any case, you can check them out here.
