Redfish Survey Work-Life Tips
In December we looked at some tips for people to achieve work-life balance and put forth our own survey. The results of the Redfish survey (as of the first week of January) are:
|1 = Not Important , 2 = Somewhat Useful , 3 = Important , 4 = Very Important , 5 = Most Important|
|Do a Job You Love||3.9|
|Set Your Priorities for both Work and Play||3.9|
|Set Work Boundaries / Respect Your Private Time||3.9|
|Be Healthy (Get Enough Sleep, Exercise, Eat Healthy)||3.8|
|Schedule Personal Time Each Day||3.7|
|Take More Vacations and Time Off||3.6|
|Get Organized, Focus on Priorities||3.5|
|Focus on One Thing at a Time||2.7|
|Have Lunch in Bangkok Every So Often||2.5|
|Get a Life Coach or Mentor||2.1|
*The Rating Score is the weighted average calculated by dividing the sum of all weighted ratings by the number of total responses.
- Bangkok?, how about the French Riviera or a villa in the Swiss Alps? These I would have said “Most Important”
- LOL, like the last one.
- I believe that real time off (not when you are checking emails and taking calls all the time) is very important.
- Be flexible when necessary, but keep the balance.
This survey is still open. If you want to weigh in, please do.
