Getting work-life balance right also requires being considerate to others

Edited excerpt from Ty Danco‘s write up of Brad Feld‘s Techstars talk on work-life harmony:

Brad talked about how he has found ways to keep his relationship going in spite of a schedule which may explode at anytime. Some solutions are easy, such as warning his wife that he is expecting an important call that may come during dinner -– 1) acknowledging her; 2) being clear if he is going to need to be interrupted; and 3) setting expectations appropriately.

  1. This works both ways: it’s not just about being clear with your family. You need to make it clear to cofounders, partners, employees what you boundaries are for your family and allow them to set their own boundaries.

  2. ? did it help?
    ? how much abuse/guilt tripping did he take anyway? Did he find he got less if did these things or simply got them out of the way earlier?
