Infographic: Life, meet work. Work, meet life.
|March 14, 2012||Posted by Sophy Bot under Work/Life Separation|
Once upon a time, there used to be this handy-dandy wall separating our work lives from our private lives. These days, the separation isn’t so clear. The line between life and work has been steadily eroding for years, with our personal lives now following us into the office and our work lives barging into our private homes. Below is an exclusive infographic taken from my new book that gives some insight into just how much that wall has changed.
Check out The Hipster Effect book to find out more about what this all means and how we can best deal with the continuing erosion of the wall between life and work.
