Invitation to a Dialogue: Working Arrangements

The United States lags behind most of the world’s developed nations in rankings of the best places for mothers, especially working mothers. One reason is that the careers of many Americans demand schedules incompatible with the requirements of parenthood. Having no available middle ground, some primary caregivers (mostly mothers) leave their careers. If they do later return, they nearly always do so at salaries and positions well behind peers who did not interrupt their careers.

33 percent of Americans feel pressured to go to work even when they’re sick. But you can transmit the flu from up to 6 feet away. Maybe you should think about staying home next time?

This Wall Street Journal infographic claims Americans only work 4.5 hours a day. How is that possible, especially considering THIS?

That Sweet Spot

This graphic was from Ji Lee’s CreativeMornings talk last month. (It should be up any day now, I’ll make sure to post it) He was making a point of how personal projects feed into your  professional life and vice versa. He was able to track what personal  projects lead him to new professional opportunities. So, the two  intersect in the end.
