As summer approaches, I find myself reflecting on how technology has changed the face of education. From kindergarten to college, students are presented with more opportunities to embrace technology, expand their learning potential, and reach further into the world than previously possible. While part of me longs for the good old times of device-free days, textbooks and recess, the more logical part of me recognizes the many benefits technology has brought to the educational scene.

For example, have you thought about going back to school, or taking career training courses online, but are concerned on just where you’ll find the time to do that?

Recent conversations about work/life balance have got me thinking. Work is work – you know what your job is and, while daily tasks may vary, you clock in and (eventually) clock out. Life on the other hand, can be comprised of home, children, pets, and the associated errands, tasks, picking up, carpooling, maintenance, bill paying lawn care, and all of the wonderful stuff that goes along with it. There are always things vying for your attention. But what about finding time for yourself?
