Jack Welch has always been a truth-serum kind of guy.

“There’s no such thing as work-life balance,” Mr. Welch told the Society for Human Resource Management’s annual conference in New Orleans on June 28. “There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.”

Welch advised women that they can have a very nice life and a good career, with extended lapses taken for childrearing. But will they be superstars? Not likely, says Jack. Career success involves a certain amount of putting work first. Period. via Wall Street Journal
