Quote of the Day -- Jessi Craige

No matter what we try, work-life balance always seems like a destination that we have yet to reach. It’s around the corner, out of our grasp.
Maybe, we think, we could get there if we rearranged a little, woke up earlier, or just tried harder.

But maybe the problem isn’t what we’re doing, but rather the concept of work-life balance itself. Perhaps it’s time for a new standard: work-life blend.
-- Jessi Craige

Popular upheaval, political turmoil, industrial progress -- any combination of these can cause the evolution of a society to leapfrog generations, sweeping aside aspects of the past that might otherwise have lingered for decades. 
-- Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow (p 144)
