Last night, after my 11 hour work day (4th day in a row...) my friend Nee said something that really resonated with me. "Life before work, Queens..." Nee and I are heading up to Corning this weekend to visit another friend of ours from High School and go wine tasting and she asked if we could leave a bit later in the evening so she could hit the gym. But it really made me stop and think. Life before work. Where do you draw the line between your "life" and your career? Utimately, I force myself to beleive that working long hours and putting the time in is worth it (because if I didn't I might go crazy...) and that I am working towards some kind of goal. But am I really? Does the extra 20 hours of work per week really put me ahead of my competition out there in the marketing world? or does it just burn me out and make me jaded? At this time, there isn't much I can do about my work situation...I've had a few opportunities that didn't pan out...but I think there are things that I can do for my life situation...and like Nee said, that needs to come first.
