Discussion Question

I've always prioritized my career, but I'm starting to feel

I've always prioritized my career, but I'm starting to feel like I won't feel as committed to it once I have my baby. Should I be worried about losing my ambition?

    I agree. Your values and priorities may change but try not to worry about things that are out of your control. It's hard to think about the future with a baby on the way. The good news is the best way to plan for the future is to fully focus on what is happening to you today. Today is 100% within your control. Best of luck!

    Your priorities may change but I don't think work ethic changes. It is important to be doing something you love. If so, be confident in seeking out / asking for ways to balance your job with your new priorities.
