Today I overheard something interesting.

One of my coworkers came to my area to buy a honey bun from the little store that my employee association runs. The store was out of honeybuns and someone suggested he come back in an hour or so. “That’s ok,” he said. “I’m trying to lose weight. It’s just going to make me fatter.”

Huh?

I was confused… because I’m sure he was aware of that when he walked over here.

One thing I love about being so motivated is coming up with new ideas, and finding ways to use my talents on projects that I want to work on. I hate the feeling of being handed something you don’t want to do, and feeling powerless about the results you must produce.

But at the same time, that intense motivation backfires on me. With strong ambition and wanting to do alot of things, comes scheduling problems that make it impractical to work on everything at once.

And as I’m feeling this time crunch, I’m also thinking about what I’m not doing with my time – hanging out with friends, seeing family and cultivating my love life.

Sometimes I wonder if women like me can really have it all?

Or must we sacrifice success in order to have a family? Is it possible to do both simultaneously?
