Teachers, parents and even our peers were constantly talking about having a college degree was the only way to secure a stable and lucrative career.

The word balance inherently gives the idea of there being a trade-off associated with your work life and your home life. According to Bezos, this should never be the case if you are to be successful and happy in all aspects of your life.
