Life’s too short to allow your career to fully consume your being.
Let those words sink in.
For sure, your career is likely an essential component of your life because you’ve gotta eat and keep a roof over your head and keep yourself active (Spiritually, Mentally, Physically, Socially, Emotionally) and for many, it’s part of their “worth.”
Just as I would hope that a person doesn’t determine her worth based on what she perceives other people think about her or think she “should be doing” . . . I’m also hopeful that “worth” is deeper than this.
After all . . . it really is Turtles all the way down.
