The mobile world has done wonders for the 'anytime, anywhere productivity.' We can now work productively with the flexibility the modern employee needs to balance work and life. At least, that was the promise.

The reality is that an always-on mobile lifestyle, and the resulting expectations from employers and clients, often cause burnout in the long run. Mobile access comes at a price.
