The Part-timer’s Dilemma
Posted by Sri Subramanian (@whosissri) on March 21, 2013
It struck me as I was talking to a dynamite woman, who has chosen to work part-time. She was looking for something that would be challenging and engaging, but not critical enough that deadlines loomed large on her. She was struggling to find it.
Truth? It does not exist.
If it is not critical, if it is not showstopper important, if things will chug along just fine without it, … it is probably not engaging enough for someone of her capability and intellect.
What she needs is something engaging, something important, something critical – just in smaller chunks.
We are no longer paid for our time – we are paid for outcomes, and if our outcome is not important, it really does not matter how long or little we worked.
When you go part-time, lean in.
