The following was taken from Anne-Marie Slaughter’s article, Why Women Still Can’t Have It All, in Atlantic magazine.

Bronnie Ware, an Australian blogger who worked for years in palliative care and is the author of the 2011 book The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, writes that the regret she heard most often was “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” The second-most-common regret was “I wish I didn’t work so hard.” She writes: “This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship.”

Think about that the next time you are sitting in a pointless meeting or you agree with the boss simply because he’s the boss.
