Work - Life Balance

Boomers are often credited with the strong work ethic in our country but I wonder if we boomers are to blame for the insanity related to putting work ahead of our personal lives.

The motto (borrowed from a Jason Aldean song) says 'don't stop till the job gets done.'  I believe in that until it crosses the work/life line.  Just how far are we supposed to go to get a job done when the time spent on that endeavor takes away from time spent with family or time used for charitable purposes?  If the job involves something life or death, that's one thing.  If the job involves something like making radio commercials or managing office workers, that's another.

Here's another motto/question to ponder: work to live or live to work?  Think about that one for a minute.
