Becca Anderson, author of Badass Women Give the Best Advice, has written a new blog post on how to find balance in your life.
“You cannot be really first-rate at your work if your work is all you are.”
“I believe you are your work. Don’t trade the stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That’s a rotten bargain.”
RITA MAE BROWN
“Take your work seriously, but never yourself.” MARGOT FONTEYN
“Any woman who has a career and a family automatically develops something in the way of two personalities, like two sides of a dollar bill, each different in design…. Her problem is to keep one from draining the life from the other.”
IVY BAKER PRIEST
“A human being must have occupation if he or she is not to become a nuisance to the world.”
DOROTHY L. SAYERS
“Value work. But not any kind of work. Ask yourself, ‘Is the work vital, strengthening my own character, or inspiring others, or helping the world?’”
ANNA ROBERTSON BROWN
