In Six Words: When You Have It All, What Do You Have?

full_moonLast week, Marissa Mayer, Yahoo CEO, announced employees must now report to work in Yahoo’s office. Employees can no longer work from home.

An announcement like this leads to discussions about company policies which help (and sometimes hinder) an employee’s ability to find time for their career and their family. We discussed this a bit on yesterday’s talk show with Heather, who works remotely for a year so she can be close to her parents.

As I read about Mayer’s decision, I can’t help but notice that we’re back to the conversation about “having it all.” I often wonder about this: What does having it all mean?

I’d love to know what you think about having it all. When you have it all, what do you have? So, let’s create six-word stories about having it all. Mine are:

I sleep at peace at night.

I chose. I prioritize. I contribute.

When you have it all, what do you have? Please share your six-word answer in our comments section, below. I’ll choose a random winner to receive Take Comfort and Take Comfort, Too, the MP3s. (With the MP3s, I keep you company and share comforting words of reflection.)
