The clarity of thought displayed in this article has won you a fan and subscriber. The feeling you called out after reading a “best book” is what I’m feeling reading this article. Great work.

I remember feeling jealous of my nanny who would spend afternoons playing on the deck with the kids and that’s when I knew I couldn’t stay in my corporate job. I was meeting with accomplished women who had families and were leading multimillion dollar portfolios in my day job but I was jealous of the woman who i paid to play with my kids. And then most recently I felt jealous of a self appraisal at work from a friend who does a lot of things in marketing and I couldn’t figure out where the jealousy was coming from. A lot to think about thanks to your essay
