If you’re just focused on work, my view is that you’ll never get enough back from any organization no matter how fantastic the role is. You have to have a full life, so that you really get enriched in a lot of different ways. That can be family and kids. It can be for others sports. For me is it’s not about having balance; it’s about having mix.
