Taking a break once in a while

If you’ve at all been trying to unplug once in a while – as I have been to mixed success,  you’ll enjoy this article from last Sunday’s NY Times.

    In our 2007 Private Equity and Venture Capital compensation survey, we found 49% of the respondents actually felt that they were doing a better than average job of achieving balance in their lives. Only a small minority of stated that they strike a poor balance between their work and personal lives. 38% of the respondents stated that the work/personal life balance is average. As a point of comparison from our other studies, this data shows the work/life balance achieved here is better than that of those employed in the hedge fund industry.

      i'm actually not surprised to hear that. one of the great things about the venture business is that while there is a lot of work and the overall hours are pretty steep, there's enough flexibility to be able to achieve that balance. i feel the same way. i work a ton of hours, but i'm usually able to get home for dinner and take my kids to school every day (at least when i'm in town).
