Lives of quiet, screaming desperation ...

I like this TEDx presentation from Nigel Marsh regarding work/life balance -- I've also embedded it below.

Here's a direct quote from the presentation: "There are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet, screaming desperation, where they work long, hard hours at jobs they hate to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like."

Worth a watch and some hard thought.  Maybe even make that list of ideal work/life balance and see what it looks like and what it would take to realize it.
