Living well is a challenge.
Brian Palmer , a successful businessman , lives in
New York and works as a top - level
manager in a large corporation. He in proud of his rapid rise in the corporation. However , he is even prouder of the
change he has made recently in his ideas about success. " My value system." he says , "has changed a little bit as the
result of a divorce. Now I think differently about what is important in life. Two years ago , with the same work load I have
right now , I would stay in the office and work until midnight , come home , go to bed , and get up at six and work again
until midnight. Now , my family is more important to me than work and the work will just have to wait." A new marriage
and a house full of children have become the center of Brian's life. But such new values were realized only after the
pain of the first divorce.
Whether or not Brian's life was satisfying , he was deeply committed to succeeding at his career and his family
responsibilities. He held two full-time jobs to support his family , even though the long hours prevented him from spending
time with his family. Brian describes his reasons for working so hard after he married quite simply. " It seemed like the
best thing to do at that time. I didn't like not having enough money and with my wife unable to contribute to the family
income , it seemed like the best thing to do." Now , he knows better. " Now , I realize that my time and love are as
important as money for the family. I'm just glad I learned this before it was too late."
