Shame on me for even considering it

How do you balance work and home life?

I used to scoff at the notion of work/life balance. If you like work well enough, it can become part of your life. There need not be a separation between life and work.

Now, I’m not too sure I feel that way. There is a need to box certain things in one’s world. Unless you’re the U.S. President (or other world leader), you should attempt to separate out work. Compartmentalize it. I didn’t for the longest time, and I came to pay the consequences that were varied. And, trust me, there were consequences.

Sadly, I had learned that lesson, and yet I almost made the same mistake of taking on a work “project” that would have disturbed a work/life equilibrium. Shame on me for even considering it. I should have said no from the start and not gone through the consideration motions.

  1. Just like what Dad said months after my mother died: “When you die, the place you worked at will simply get a new person to replace you the next day. But family? They’ll remember you forever.”
