It’s just another day at the office.  You are at your desk by 7am and call it a day at around 7pm.

But the moment you get home, you know that you will still check and reply to email or do some back reading.

Easily…another 2 hours spent for work…at home.

That leaves you 10 hours for personal stuff, errands, chores, family time, social obligations, leisure and sleep.

Not enough time in a day, huh?
