Key Points

Life doesn’t stop when you’re at work.
The goal is to build a career that fully integrates with what you want most out of life.
If you’re around the people you want to be around then you become a happier person.
When people say they want work-life balance, what they’re really saying is that they want to experience happiness in how they’re spending their time.
When you do things that other people are not willing to do, you get results that other people don’t get.
