There is time in your life when you need to pause and think “Are you outta your freaking mind?” It should have come when I was spending my life looking at 14″ monitor displaying MS Outlook and partial hearing loss in the left ear because the phone has become an extension of my form. Slowly I had started achieving the perfect work life balance..work was becoming the only life I knew. But when an irate colleague decided that my inability to take on a new development request at 12-freaking-o-clock in the night was a direct reflection of my ability to work, my body rebelled before my mind could-throwing up whatever I had ingested in the twisted sleep cycle and I decided to take a a couple of days off. And not obsessively check my laptop every 5 seconds.
It was bliss. It was torturous. But I think it can be done.
I seriously need to say no. I need to stop covering up other people’s idiocy and their mediocre work.And I need to reclaim my life back.
