Should work emails be banned after 6pm? They don't have to be banned - just not necessarily answered. Much like anything, you have to set boundaries. Sometimes after 6 is smart - sometimes it isn't.
Yes, it sounds lovely to have a life after work. But working harder also pays off.

I teach online courses now. My students usually need help in the "off hours", so this would in no way apply to me. Lots of exceptions. Good article. Thanks for sharing.

Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I just start somewhere that I feel comfortable. It's amazing how that simple step gets the ball rolling. Here are some more simple scientific ways to overcome procrastination from PsyBlog. How do you overcome it?

When she couldn't find a workout routine that fit her busy lifestyle, +Shay de Silva made her own! Now she helps other people workout anytime, anywhere. Now THAT'S life on your own terms - our +BIGG Success motto :D
 
We are always so inspired by people who take their passion and turn it into a business, and one of the best places to look is problems you have of your own! That's what +Shay de Silva of Fast Fitness to Go did! Hear her inspiring #entrepreneur  story.

What’s worse than being told we’ve done something wrong – is being told about it with destructive criticism rather than constructive criticism. On +BIGG Success we share the best way to react to a bad critique.
 
A bad critique can put a BIGG Goal-Getters into a bad mood fast. We are perfectionists at heart. We strive to do our best every day and put thought and heart into the work that we do. It’s personal for us. It’s a reflection of our work ethic. We share the best way to react to a bad critique. - George & Mary-Lynn
