    ● Read the article below about family businesses and answer Questions 14 to 19.
    ● For questions 14-19, mark one letter A, B or C.

    Work-life merge is a term coined by Facebook executive Emily White to describe a modern phenomenon in which the work and personal areas of life are not neatly divided but blend together seamlessly. In this paradigm people are free to take a couple of hours in the middle of the business day for something personal, but they are equally likely to spend the equivalent amount of time on their laptops on a Sunday night answering work emails.

    Two modern trends have facilitated this work-life merge. First of all, a difficult economy means many people simply cannot afford to reduce their working hours, even when other commitments such as family compete for their time. Secondly, modern technology is changing the way we work, giving us a degree of freedom that effectively releases us from our desks. We are now able to still be at work even when physically out of the office and engaged in more personal pursuits.

    To a large extent, the effect of technology on our lives has been contrary to expectation. Rick Segal, CEO of Gyro, explains that ’Productivity-enhancing technology has not increased the amount of leisure time we enjoy. Quite the contrary, it’s caused work to spill over its banks, flooding more and more hours of the day and more days of the week – curiously as a result of people’s own behaviour and choices.’ This suggests that those who choose a work-life merge are happy to do so. They are typically driven individuals who exploit technology to customize the way they work so they can allocate their time and energy efficiently to get the most from both their personal and professional lives.

    The other trend relates to the way in which technology is blurring the lines between work and private life. Online searches at work bring up a host of enticing clickable sidetracks, while email inboxes are increasingly full of both personal and work mail. Friend lists on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter or internet messaging services have become an indistinguishable mix of personal and professional contacts.

    Of course, the downside to all this is the fact that the working day has become longer, more chaotic and there is never any real escape from the office. For people who hate their jobs, this is a nightmare. But for those who embrace it, merged life seems to provide the the best chance we have of achieving what matters most in both and out of the office.
