Too much connectivity? Not anymore

Around Christmas last year, when my husband gave me a Blackberry, I wondered whether connectivity helped or hindered work-life balance. I ended up giving it back during the 30-day trial period and getting an iPhone instead, thinking that the iPhone seemed a little less business-like, a little more fun, a little more likely to stack the odds in favor of life rather than work.

And then, last week, as I was writing a blog post on my iPhone while waiting in an airport parking lot, it hit me: Techonology may be the fulcrum upon which my work and my life are currently balanced.

Read the post at The 36-Hour Day, and tell me: Does technology help you make the most of your time? Or is it making it harder to spend time wisely?
