The Sickness of Never Taking a Sick Day

By Yisrael Campbell

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2010

This article explores dilemmas and issues related to work and family life balance. The author uses the example of his father, who never took a sick day from work, to explain his own thoughts and motivations about working and home life. The author concludes by affirming that work by itself isn't sufficient for him, asserting that his emotional life and identity cannot come from his work alone.
