How are you finding work-life balance with all the things that you do? And how do you stay grounded in a tech ecosystem that has highs and lows on a daily basis?

 

I try to continually set expectations with those around me so they know burnout is a real thing, and that because I work so hard most of the time, sometimes I'm going to be out of commission altogether. And try to offer the same respect to them.

We try to proactively avoid "butt-in-seat syndrome" where you might be sitting in your chair not being productive, but unwilling to leave and go home because nobody else has. Everyone is expected to work hard, but be honest when they just need to go home and be humans.
