Whenever I'm asked to be on another committee at work, part of me groans. More time spent sitting in meetings and not actually doing my work. I've had my fair share of committees that function productively and those that are pure time sinks.
But when I was asked to be on my company's newly formed Work/Life Balance Committee this month, I jumped for joy. I love when two big parts of my life collide like this - my job and my ESP passion.
Then I read this article that mentions another company with such a committee, and I wonder if it is a trend. What a nice trend, if so.
