Work-Life Synergy?

I came across an interesting report written recently by Lori Herz and Arnie Herz over at Legal Sanity titled “BEYOND BALANCE: How to Cultivate Work-Life Synergy in the Law.”

The report is written about the legal profession, but please feel free to insert your chosen profession where you read the words ‘law’, lawyer’, and/or ‘legal.’ I believe their observations ring true for many of us.

What do you want to do?

I came across a post today that I had read a few months ago on Michelle Medley’s blog at Motto Magazine.

In her post, Ms. Medley shares her thoughts on the classic 1938 Oscar-winning film “You Can’t Take it With You” staring Lionel Barrymore.
