Sheryl Sandberg has come out of the closet as someone who leaves work at, gasp, 5:30pm. Every day. While this ‘early leave’ seems shocking to most ambitious executives, here in Asia it’s even harder to pull off. Here’s a little inspiration to take the leap:

“I was showing everyone I worked for that I worked just as hard. I was getting up earlier to make sure they saw my emails at 5:30, staying up later to make sure they saw my emails late. But now I’m much more confident in where I am and so I’m able to say, ‘Hey! I am leaving work at 5:30.’ And I say it very publicly, both internally and externally.”
