“In our individual lives if we have a drive to achieve, and we have an extra ounce of energy or 30 minutes of time, we’ll spend our time and energy on whatever activity yields us the most immediate and tangible evidence of achievement. Our careers provide immediate evidence of achievement. Every day you can put your hands on your hips and look at something that you accomplished. But in raising family, on a day-to-day basis, the relationships with our spouses and relationships with our children don’t provide any immediate achievement. It takes 20 years to raise a child. It’s a very long investment. And so people with a high need for achievement systematically under-invest in their families and over-invest in their careers.” – Clayton Christensen
