The more I delve into WoLFi the more I realise that achieving balance seems to be about having enough time to do so. Asking about satisfaction with time pressure seems shed more light on WoLFi that asking about satisfaction with balance. A case in point is in Barbara Pocock’s AWALI (Australian Work Life Index) study that showed men and women having similar satisfaction levels on work-life balance – yet greater disparity with feeling rushed or pressed for time, with women feeling more time pressured than men. I wonder asking about balance yields such different results to asking about time pressure. Your thoughts appreciated!!
Meanwhile, a presentation I did at the Australian Institue of Family Studies (AIFS) conference recently ended up attracting some media attention from Adele Horin in the SMH. My research is mentioned towards the end of the article. Seems to that WoLFi and its link to time pressure are quite topical. My supervisor/mentor’s research is also highlighted.
