Work and life

The greatest and the clearest advice on work-life balance that I ever got, came from a senior manager at a client location once.

This is what he said, "If ever there is a choice in front of you between life and work, consider this - imagine, God forbid, you get run over by a truck on your way out of work today, your company can probably find a replacement for you within days. Not your family."

Ah true true. But then there are a few who equate work with life (not me of course). Between life and work, whatever they choose, it feels like death.

Yea, true, in some extraordinary cases they blend. Your work becomes your life. Sachin Tendulkar and AR Rehman would be examples:) and I don't think they are complaining.
