“Claiming your 20s”

Meg Jay gives a moving talk of the psychological aspect of work-life balance, of relationships (conceptual and social), and other important points that define who we are and affect the personal and professional decisions we make.

While the majority of Meg’s talk is couched in the context of dating and personal (dysfunctional) relationships, in many cases most people engage in the same decision-making process when selecting a life path, a career, and so on. We end up in dysfunctional friendships, work relationships, and perhaps start out with a job that is not a good “fit” for us. Personal space and reflection are important to the selection of actions that will help you “build your identity capital,” as Meg explains.
