"That's all"
Immortal words spoken by Miranda Priestley. Dismissively, haughtily.

That got me thinking.

What is the measure of one's life? That in itself brings to mind a song from the musical Rent The theme song "Seasons of Love"

525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes - how do you measure,
measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In
inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. In 525,600 minutes - how do you
measure a year in the life?

How about love? How about love? How about love? Measure in love. Seasons of

525,600 minutes! 525,000 journeys to plan. 525,600 minutes - how can you measure
the life of a woman or man?

In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, or
the way that she died.

It’s time now to sing out, tho the story never ends let's celebrate remember a year in the life of friends. Remember
the love! Remember the love! Remember
the love! Measure in love. Seasons of love! Seasons of love.

I just finished watching "Devil wears prada" and by all accounts, the book is better. So gonna try to find that book first.

Anyway, it's about careers and the choices and sacrifices that we make in our lives. How far do we go? and when do we say, okay my priority is this and this.
Reason why I even thought that this is something to ponder further is the fact that I just recently decided that I am gonna stay with the family business. It may sound like a cop-out but I have thought about it for 2 years and finally came to a decision. I'm expected to go above and beyond to excel at what I do in order to be able to run it in a proficient manner. Not even to expand it.. but merely proficient.
Do I stay back and work until late at night and forego seeing my family?
Do i put family time above my career? (for my future when I do have a family)
Where do I draw the line? and when does it become blurred?

This issue is also a little close to my heart because someone I know declared that her career was more important at this moment in time and by default, that seemed to make other things less important, or trivial even.
I'm not saying that i'm bitter about it just a tad mystified..

hmm.. if i end it on that note, does that mean that this entire post is about me being mystified?
Please don't get me wrong.. All I wanna know is
How far or how high do you place your career?

actually, to have the best of all worlds, it's not really possible.. something has to suffer..
cos there simply isn't enough time to do it all...
