I happened to run across this post on balancing work and life. I think it’s probably applicable to just about any field, not just medicine. I work with plenty of people that have absolutely no balance at all in their lives and feel compelled to work 90 hours a week simply because they can. What’s really strange is that they all hate their jobs, but work 12 hour days anyway. I don’t think I could live that way.
