Would you rather be very successful professionally with only a tolerable private life, or have a great private life but an uninspiring professional one? If you feel your private life is more important to you, do your priorities reflect this? If no, why not?
I prefer the private life over the professional one. And, yes, I do believe my priorities reflect this. In no way does my professional life match anything that the world would consider successful. I don’t have a position of power or influence and I certainly don’t make a lot of money.
Does that necessarily mean that my private life is great? Not really. I mean… it’s okay. But I’d make changes if I had my druthers. As it is, though, I think things are going all right.
But what about you? Do you prefer success professionally or privately? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
