I came across this blog entry, Work/Life Balance … is it a Myth? earlier today, written by an IT recruiter. Can you have your cake and eat it too? The article points out the importance of making choices and setting priorities … something I talk about all the time.
…it’s about you setting priorities and making choices that mirror those priorities.
True, they go hand in hand. The way I see it, the key is not only in making choices, but accepting them as well.
Priorities – Choices – Acceptance
Here in Jackson, I am more likely to hear a working professional focusing on where they are going to bike this weekend or what kind of new skis they will be buying this year as opposed to why they are not making more money. It is a lifestyle choice they have made, and they feel lucky to have been able to continue to build their career while living in a place that they love. I would say that is “having your cake and eating it too”.
