I know I don't have it all. No way. But that's my choice. I chose to concentrate on home life, family life for the next 5 or 10 or whatever years. There are trade-offs in life and I have made mine. I don't have a slick black suit hanging in the closet so I can go out and close that half a million dollar deal at Cargill. Oh well. I am hoping my mojo will still be there hanging where I left it once I get a chance to breathe, later down the road.
My opinion is that something has to give. You can have a stellar career but you pay a price for it. You can have a wonderously rich home/family life but your name isn't likely to show up on that Top 100 Most Influential list in your industry. You can spend your every waking moment nurturing your kids and preparing them for great things but your spouse could get a little miffed when you can never find a little time for intimacy for him/her.
I don't think we were meant to Have It All.
