Should You Work at 10:40pm on Friday Nights?

By Jason Paul Rogers

I’m not suggesting you be willing to work at 10:40p on a Friday night…

…unless you aspire to reach the 1% in your field, that is.

Personally, I get frustrated by people who sell the “you can have it all” narrative.

The one that really gets me? Folks who proclaim “you can have work-life balance AND be elite in your field!”

…really? 

Chances are, unless you were disproportionately stuffed with raw talent, this narrative is really… a myth.

Here’s what I believe:

Life is about decisions, choices, and YES – sacrifices.

We can’t have it all; but if we take aim and work hard? We can have what we want most.

Do you agree? Or disagree?
