@ginidietrich well, it means some trades offs. I suppose we would be more successful/make more money if we put in 12 hours a day but my biz partner and I both decided we didn't want that. We'd rather earn less and take time for health and vacations and relationships.

Really, really great post!! I'm not sure what change I need to make today, because I feel like I made it a year ago when I started my own business and decided I wasn't working 12 hour days again. Turns out my kids and my husband know me better now (and they still like me) and I get to choose really great clients vs feeling like I have to work with people who don't share my values. I love where I am right now and glad you do too!
@belllindsay Exactly! And on "people engagement consultant"... it's because I despise being associated with the term "HR" so we don't use it here. :)

Lindsay, in my humble (but professional) opinion, you are SPOT ON with this advice! Are you sure you're not a people engagement consultant? :) I would add under point 1- sometimes it's not restructuring or politics. sometimes it's YOU (usually early career firings). and that pill can be hard to swallow, but I've seen people really self-examine and grow and have successful careers and then I've seen the smug/it can't be me go and fail again.
Loved the piece and have "followed" Laura. We love a little zany in our workplace. Life's too short for stuffy boardrooms and taking oneself too seriously-- at work or elsewhere.
