lass, y…he theory, which has unknown origins but was explained by David Sedaris in a 2009 New Yorker story, if you want to be successful in one area, you must turn off one burner. If you want to be world-class, you’ll have to turn off two.
Not to be a jerk, but this is spoken like a man. Sincerely, I do not mean this offensively. This is patriarchy at it's finest. It is this kind of thinking that tells women they cannot possibly do well at maintaining family, friends, their health and have a job, too.
Perhaps men need to learn from women in this area. While the number of women in top positions does not equal the number of men, those who are there do not turn off any of the burners.
Do you think Michelle Obama turned off any burners? I’m going to say no. :)
Men need to learn to juggle like women and they won't have to turn off any burners. And hey, they'd have time to do their share of the housework without their work or health suffering for it. Which means happier wives, which means happier homes. :)
