Not All Free Time Is Created Equal

“It’s not just that we face a shortage of free time; it’s also that our free time, in order to be satisfying, often must align with that of our friends and loved ones. We face a problem, in other words, of coordination.”

This New York Times piece is an interesting juxtaposition to my link above about turning down a raise in exchange for more free time.

Because this article points out that studies show not all free time is created equal and that being free on the weekend — when most other people are also free — is significantly more valuable than having time off during the week.
