Time to make some changes

Friday - - Friday Inbox - NAME WITH­HELD ON RE­QUEST

I loved the ar­gu­ment that Ari­anna Huff­in­g­ton pre­sented in the ar­ti­cle ‘Lead­ing the superpreneurs’ (June 21) when she said that women in the cor­po­rate world are com­pet­ing on men’s terms – work­ing as hard as pos­si­ble and then fac­ing burnout.

I can truly re­late to her as I have been in a high-pres­sure job for more than a decade and have re­cently be­gun to feel that my work-life bal­ance has gone hay­wire. In my jour­ney to the top of the cor­po­rate lad­der, I now feel I have lost out on all those things that truly mat­ter – a strong bond with my fam­ily; my love for po­etry writ­ing and most im­por­tantly, I have not fo­cused on my emo­tional and phys­i­cal health, which has now be­gun to take its toll.

Af­ter read­ing this ar­ti­cle, I am go­ing to be mak­ing a lot of changes.
