What’s your work-life philosophy?
I try to include an element of humor in everything I do in life. Everything around seems to be fast paced and stress-filled, so I always try to put things in perspective. I strive to achieve a balance between family and work, in that order. “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… it’s all small stuff” (Great book to read!).
One of my favorite work/life quotes: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition”. – Steve Jobs
