A CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE

From TODAY, Voices

I know women whose lives once completely revolved around their daytime jobs.

 

At work they could get more done by noon than most people did all day— and they were just getting started. They’d move from one task to the next without skipping a beat. Competence was their middle name.

 

Then they decided to have kids and suddenly all that changed.

 

Days that were once taken up by high-powered meetings were instead spent feeding and diapering their new baby. Their PDA was replaced by a baby bottle.

 

And they couldn’t be happier! What started out as a short sabbatical from work became their life’s crowning achievement.

 

Because the thing that changed most in their life was their list of priorities.

 

What they’re doing now is more important than a million corporate takeovers — and they know it.
