I know this is an oldish article now, but what a good one! I've seen this cult in action a lot as a former management consultant. Recently I moved to a new job in a company where people work 40 hours per week, no more, no less. If we do work overtime for some reason, we get to record the additional time as flex leave. It's an honour system too - they check it occasionally but people seem to play by the rules and it works pretty well. At first, this was strange to me. Why weren't people working longer? I am having to slowly adjust out of the consulting culture where you'll do more than you're paid for, consistently and often get nothing for it.

Thanks for sharing, you have caught the right nerve here, I think this postis bang on. Our lives should not be defined by work, our work is just a small part of who we really are.
