Boeing technicians in South Carolina to vote on unionisation: WSJ
Some Boeing Co workers at the planemaker's factory in South Carolina will vote on union representation later this month, the Wall Street Journal reported https://on.wsj.com/2xav6Px on Monday, citing U.S. labor regulators.
I find thinking about work-life balance exhausting. The idea that we all should strive for a perfect equilibrium of work, family, health, and friendship seems like a recipe for stress. Anytime I’ve attempted to achieve it, I’ve failed miserably and felt worse about myself. As a result, I’ve given up aiming for it altogether.
But according to Tiffany Dufu, author of Drop The Ball: Achieving More By Doing Less, the problem with the idea of work-life balance is our own definition of it. In this last episode of the first season of the Secrets Of The Most Productive People podcast, we explore why the term has a gendered connotation, even though it’s an issue that both men and women face. Dufu also suggests that we can all benefit from lowering the expectations that we have of ourselves, and be forgiving when we don’t meet our self-imposed high standards. You can find the episode on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, RadioPublic, or wherever you get your podcasts.
This is the last episode for season one of Secrets Of The Most Productive People, but please stay subscribed as we’ll be back for season two with more productivity-related content. In addition, we have a bonus episode coming up, live from the Fast Company Innovation Festival.

In its latest bid to get on Santa’s good side, JetBlue is inviting U.S. customers to #CheckInForGood: Destination Unknown.
The airline’s new goodwill and good works contest kicks off today and runs through October 26. Would-be do-gooders can enter online at jetbluecheckinforgood.com and prove they would look good in tights and a cape—and can write a compelling 150-word essay.
If you’re entry is selected, you and a guest, plus up to 49 other winners, will be swept off on a JetBlue plane for three days of good deeds and good works in a mystery destination, alongside some of the airline’s crew members and nonprofit partners. The flight takes off on November 27 and will return passengers on November 30th.
How it works:
To enter, fill out a short online questionnaire about what “Good” you have to declare, starting now through October 26
Plus, JetBlue check-in kiosks will pop up so people can to fill out the same contest questionnaire for an opportunity to win. Sorry small-town America, the pop-ups will only be in surprise locations around New York and Los Angeles.
