Early in my career as a lawyer and corporate exec, I thought I could do it all. I worked long hours at the office or on the road. And often in my free time I worked in the garden. The opportunities seemed vast, and I hustled after them.
But then I noticed I had a perfect setting for a great life, but was working too hard to enjoy that life. Too often work consumed most of my time. And the garden started to feel like one more responsibility that was just a little too big.
