The Art of Midlife: Courage and Creative Living for Women

By Linda N. Edelstein | Go to book overview

lawyer does not want to work one hundred hours a week. Maybe that is not success; maybe success is an integration of meaningful work and connections. The choices we make at work are similar to other decisions. Preferences depend on who we are, what we need and want, and where we are in our lives. These directions are not right or wrong, but they are acutely personal.
