Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Zen and the Art of Business(life)

"These four support legs and the all-important anchors at their base remind me of what it takes to support a work-life balance. The four elements are: 1) good health, 2) a functional social network of friends and family, 3) a solid employment situation, and 4) time, space, principles, and policies for yourself."
(page 156, Kindle Edition)

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense & Sensibility - Reading Together - Whose Success?

"Setting and managing our own expectations defines success and a path to balance and happiness. My advice is, don’t get too caught up in long-term definitions; chew on manageable short-term goals and benchmarks or you will only get frustrated, depressed, or worse. I’ll never be a great pianist (oh, happy day, when they invented electric pianos with earphones), so my consuming goal is to learn a new, simple piece—a great pleasure and reward I appreciate fully when achieved."
(page 116, Kindle Edition)

"Feeling bien dans sa peau (comfortable in one’s skin) is an attitude that changes with your decades and is more in your head than in fact."
(page 123, Kindle Edition)
