The Flawed Equation of Being a Parent and Having a Career

You want to give 110% to your career, you want to give 110% to your kid.

110% + 110% = 220%.

But you are one person, 100%.

It’s a flawed equation.

I’m not saying it’s not doable. Of course it is. But when it starts to get frustrating, remember it’s not you—it’s the situation. Don’t personalize the feelings of inadequacy, not enoughness, and/or failure.
