Success: Trappings v. Substance

Lance’s fantastic blog post about how accomplishment makes you more attractive really got me thinking.  I feel like what he says is relevant to the negative effect of the BF’s job on his health and decision-making, which has really got the BF and I revisiting a lot of things.

See, he went to grad school for a terminal degree in his field because he knew that he could become very wealthy working in private practice in that industry.  What he didn’t bank on was: Continued
