While an employer might set the tone for the balance, or lack thereof, between work and home life, ultimately it's each person's responsibility to establish the desired balance, Greg Kratz writes. "Just as I'm in charge of my daily mood, I'm also in charge of my personal quest for work-life balance. Even if I work for a company that tries to help its employees in this area, I can still choose to work from home at night or skip my children's school performances," he writes.
