Lacking ambition?

When it comes to career success, many of us equate it with high pay and prestigious job titles. But what about quality of life? 

My experience working on Wall Street taught me that the stressors of the job can outweigh the benefits. Yes, I miss my successful friends and sometimes envy their accomplishments, but I don’t miss the job. 

I’ve taken a quieter path, working for non-profits, and while it comes with its challenges, the work-life balance is significantly better. I value my peace of mind more than status or pay, and I don’t think that makes me lacking in ambition. 

It’s all about finding what works best for you.
