Leaning out

A very interesting article by Alice Dreger who is a professor of clinical medical humanities and bioethics at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. She has written for The New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post.

"I intentionally lean out of my career. A lot. I do this because there are only 24 hours in a day, and when I ask myself, If I died tomorrow, what would I want people to remember me for? it isn’t anything I’ve published, any TV appearance I’ve made, or anything like that...I’d like my son to remember that, almost every morning, I snuggled with him for 15 minutes before we finally got up together" Click here to read the article.
