Are we too technology dependent?

Business Week’s Working parent’s blog nailed this one.  In this article, Anne Tergesen laments the fact that her husband and some friends were still tied to their jobs while enjoying(?) Disney World and spring training in Florida.  Do our jobs really need us that bad that we can’t have some real time off without the Black Berry, the laptop, etc?

    We need our lives more than our jobs need us

    Our friends and families need us more than our jobs us

    The tricky bit that brings closes the loop is that our families need us to have our jobs and we often have to be satisfied in our work to not bring the whole thing tumbling down

    In the end, however, I think there’s a tendency for people to place too much of their self-worth in their rank/salary/whatnot and I’ve seen it from Secretaries through Sr. Mgrs (sadly I dont know any C-level execs personally…I’d better check my self-worth : ) and there is much more false pressure/importance placed upon ourselves that nobody else is really putting there for us

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
