About one year after I embarked on my legal career as a junior associate at a major international law firm, I had to submit an article for the annual internal newsletter.

I wrote the piece below ten years ago, in March 2003, when I was practicing transactional securities law and starting to question what the hell I was doing with my life. Funny how it took me ten more years and another couple of jobs to finally realize that maybe this attempt at work-life balance was just a crock of shit (at least for me).
