An overbearing career is unhealthy, says Stan Christensen, Arbor Advisors Partner. Rather than working long hours, Christensen relays a successful negotiation with his manager explaining his interests outside of work. He asked to be judged by the tasks he completed, and not by the amount of hours he was in the workplace. He recalls that the results were fewer long evenings and weekends at his desk, earning him respect and the time needed for his own pursuits.
