On the CNN Parents section of the CNN website, I came across this article about the issue of being a working parent and raising a family and the struggle for a reasonable balance between the two, from a man's point of view.
I've been personally exploring my own work/life balance lately with my idea of a Tiny Career. I shared the first 4 Tiny Career elements, of 7, in my eNewsletter to those on my email list. I received many positive responses encouraging me to continue exploring my Tiny Career idea.
What was interesting about the Tiny Career responses I received was that several of them were surprised by, and commended me on sharing, my perspective -- my male perspective on work/life balance.
At the time of writing that eNewsletter, It hadn't really occurred to me that there may not be many men sharing their thoughts and feelings about work/life balance. I was simply writing from my own experience related to something that is important to me and my family, to me that's not gender specific.
Any who, when I found this CNN article it resonated with me in light of those eNewsletter responses, so I thought I would share it.
Warning: If you read the comments on the CNN article you may take offense to them. In my opinion, the article comments quickly become a distracted rant that gets off-topic from the actual content of the article...really it becomes a pissing match between lovers and haters.
