There’s no such thing as work-life balance. I think this every morning when I leave for work, watching my 2-year-old son press his face against the front window and wave at me as I back down the driveway. It comes up again at work, as I guiltily feel relieved when a patient cancels and I have an unexpected half hour to work on a behavioral science presentation for residents. There is always somewhere else that I should be and something else that I should be working on.
