Being more effective at work and in life

Work hard, play hard.

This is easier said than done, and I am working on being more effective both at work and in life. I have always maintained that one should be working on things that they love, but that neglects to mention how to separate work from the other demands of life.

The truth is, it's not easy (for me at least), and sometimes I devote all my energy in work; leaving no time or energy to have a social life.

The problem with integrating work with life and working "hard" (aka long hours) - I become myopic in my work - working on the immediate goals, and not standing back to focus on the big picture; working on small features, when there are revolutionary things up for the taking.
