Take Some Time Off, Already
It’s time for a break. Yes, in Silicon Valley’s tech industry, there’s a pervasive culture of long hours and never signing off or shutting down. But overworking just does not work, and to me, it’s not a status symbol either. I make it a point to be home for dinner every night with my family, and it turns out that the benefits accrue not just to my personal life, but to my professional life too. The big lesson here? Working more is no substitute for working hard and working smart.
