Norway has one of the best work-life balance in the world I think.
I have the flexibility to take care of my family and myself because it's culturally prioritized and supported by the belief that is overall good for the team.
Before, while working in a non tech job in the US, I was on the road 4-6 hours a day, working overtime, etc.
Now I only work overtime when the job needs me to which is rare, I get paid holiday time that would require someone to work for over ten years to achieve in the US and I get home in time to pick up my children, go to the gym, etc.
When life is better, I work better, and that is real value to the team and customer.
