Do you work on the weekends? Would you try to clear as much as work as possible on the weekends to clear your workload for the upcoming week?

I don't. It isn't required.

There is always work and upcoming projects so if I do not draw clear boundaries between work and life, I can easily forgo "life". That is very likely to lead to burnout.

I'm in for a marathon and not a sprint.

If there is additional work and it's important + urgent, then I may work longer on weekdays.

I may sounds crude , but if you need to bring work home to do every weekends, then you are not being very efficient during your weekdays. Time management is a skill also an art.

Work will never be completed. What I use as a guiding principle is this: Will this piece of work have a direct impact on important priorities and goals?

If it’s vital, then I’ll clear it in the weekend. It could be work that requires space to think such as brainstorming work, proposals, reports. Or it could be work that I know I need to clear because I’ll have a lot of meetings in the upcoming week and clearing the work this weekend will make me feel less anxious.

Hope this helps!

Fair point. I ask myself this question too these days. Sometimes I work over the weekend so that I am less stress when I come in on Monday

No, no point rushing. with wfh, it's important to separate and draw the line between work and off-work.
