How do you manage a good balance of performing at work, workout every day, sleep enough hours, and be able to spend time with kids and husband, and still have a social life? If I spend 8-10 hours working, I barely have time for everything else.
let me tell you this. Been married for 26 years. Silicon Valley 25 years both husband and I are hi tech folks (Indians). Successfully raised two boys - one will be graduating from Harvard this June and the other will be entering Duke this Fall. I am a Group PM and my husband Director of Engineering, Both mid level career people. You cannot have it all. Something has to give. I feel I have done a great job with kids, decent job with career and balancing with family. I haven't spent as much quality time with my husband as my non-Indian counterparts. Hopefully I will get to do that, now that the kids are out of the house. Some of the people I graduated from college and grad school have much higher titles and probably TC. But overall I am very proud of my accomplishments, both home and a decent career.
