Back to work/life balance. While there is no bright line here, I have observed that older practitioners seem to be concerned about “work time,” while the younger tend to focus on “personal time.” It seems to hinge on history. If you grew up on those crazy 75-hour tax-season weeks, you’re more likely to think about the “work-time” side of the equation. If you’ve always been smart enough to avoid the insanity of the 14-hour day, you’re more likely to center on the “personal-time” side.
So who’s right? Remember the words of that great Jewish theologian Tevye, who in Fiddler on the Roof listened to one side of an argument and responded, “He is right,” and then, hearing the other side, said, “He’s right.” And then, when told that they couldn’t both be right, noted, “You know, you are also right.”
