—Update 1/21/14 The survey is now closed. Check back in the next week or two when I hope to share the results here.—

In the last few months, I’ve given dozens of interviews with print, radio, and TV reporters about Maxed Out. These are some of the recurring questions I hear:

  • Are some  jobs more family-friendly than others?
  • Are people in every industry maxed out?
  • How much control do managers have to fix this?

I don’t really know the answers; I regularly receive emails and blog comments from people in a gazillion types of jobs and industries, but I don’t know how they compare. So I’ve put together a short survey to find out!

Here’s where you come in:

1. Fill out the survey now. Start here>

It should take about 3 minutes to complete. I will not share your personal information. I plan to quote from the results in my writing and public speaking. I will also post the results here on my blog for your reading pleasure (hopefully by February).

2. Please share the survey widely.

Email the link to your friends. Share it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn or wherever you hang out. I’m interested in hearing from people in a wide variety of jobs, industries, and locations. In order to be able to make comparisons, I would like to get as many responses as possible.

Thank you for your help!

About the photo: You may be wondering what the above photo has to do with this survey. The answer is absolutely nothing. But photos of surveys are boring. Photos of meercats are cute. Hopefully it got your attention. Did you fill out the survey yet?

In case you’re interested, here are examples of two other surveys I conducted in the past. The results were fascinating.
