Desiderata Days ~ Career
March 30, 2010
I don’t see work/life balance as a truism. The conversation we are really trying to have is not about balance, which implies stasis, but about alignment. Are we in alignment with our truest purpose? Are we engaging in the things that are going to get us there?
Max Ehrmann says:
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
I started out as a secretary in the marketing department of a large investment firm so we could have health insurance. Imagine if I had not gone with the times? I may never have shown an interest in public relations and marketing.
Delight in where you are today and know you are the master of your own ship. Be the best you can be in every moment. Learn new things and watch your life unfurl as you take new steps to change with the times.
