Does Your Personal Life Suffer Because of Work?

Does Your Personal Life Suffer When You're Succeeding at Work?

HBO has been on a The Devil Wears Prada kick lately, and while I've seen the entire film more than a few times, I've been catching bits and pieces of it over the past couple weeks with of course some overlapping. It's a fun movie that has me liking Emily's character more than Andy's the more I watch it, and among the exaggerated realities there are some chord-striking points that are admittedly relatable. One of the scenes I caught this weekend was this exchange between Nigel and Andy. Do you relate?

Andy: Sorry, it’s a busy day . . . my personal life is hanging by a thread. That’s all.
Nigel: Join the club. That’s what happens when you start doing well at work. Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. That means it’s time for a promotion.
