“There is this kind of tension between what you are on the inside and what you are on the outside professionally, and whether you have to make a choice between two different things or (if) you can blend it together. And I think that leads to a lot of satisfaction when people get it right. And I think it leads to a sort of lifelong (feeling of) ‘I wish I had done this’ or ‘I wish I could go back and do that’ if you ignore the other part of yourself.”Dr. David Hindin
