Well . . . yeah
Anita Sharpe on Business
Worthwhile magazine was founded on two very simple premises: professionals are demanding that their work lives be as fulfilling as their 'life lives'; and, if the world is going to change for the better, businesses have to lead the way.
So I was struck by two columns in today's New York Times puzzling over the same issues. Writes Matt Miller: 'If the most interesting and powerful jobs are too consuming, then why don't we re-engineer these jobs -- and the firms and the culture that sustain them -- to make possible the blend of love and work that everyone knows is the true gauge of 'success'?'
And, Tom Friedman: 'Is there any company in America that should be more involved in lobbying for some form of national health coverage than General Motors, which is being strangled by its health care costs? Is there any constituency that should be clamoring for a sane energy policy more than U.S. industry?'
Good questions. Great dialogue.
