Comment on Thoughts 2/5 by Betty Hancock

I agree that the work/life balance has suffered due to technology. It’s so convenient to be able to communicate with people across the country at any moment, but when communication was hard, we had to be much more purposeful and choosey in terms of our communication. Now that I can send an email to New York and be in touch with my boss in 5 seconds, I find myself asking questions that I wouldn’t take the time to ask if communication required a larger investment of my time. The ease of communication has opened the floodgates and shut down the barrier to entry that often used to block a lot of unnecessary work-related communication.
