On work-life balance
"I think it’s fair to say — with no scientific evidence — that deathbed wishes rarely include, 'If only I had put another twenty hours a week in at the office! That slightly cleaner product release would have made all the difference.' But that guy, that girl? You might regret that."

I beg to differ.

As Tony Montana said in Scarface, " In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women." If I had a relationship regret, it would be not taking this advice seriously.  

Guys, the girls will ALWAYS be there. You're aren't missing out on any thing. Make the money first!
 
"Jobs are replaceable. People you truly love are not."
 
Good article. My wife and I and both in our 20's still trying to find our career paths. I do not regret getting married in my 20's. It's truly awesome to have someone to come home to and discuss future plans with and when you're having a bad day to tell you it's ok.
 
I've there was a working formula for relationships then surely the wouldn't be as much fun? If I could buy a relationship off the peg I don't think I'd bother. 
 
ONE thing you can do however is wait to have kids. When you are ready.
 
+Robert Koster Kids are a double-edged sword. You love them to death, but they can and will slow career plans down, if not derail them altogether.
 
Think some of you are missing the point. We work to live. Not the other way around. 
 
In a time when most feel taking any time away from work means potential job loss, it's hard to make relationships a priority. If you're successful, take all the time you want away to date, etc. But it's a little sad that human connection goes by the wayside when many are afraid for their livelihood. On the other hand, relationships tend to relax people and make them healthier and they therefore do better work. Believe me, I wish I took more time to find someone special (beyond friends, who I value highly as well). 
 
I was 25 when I met my then 36 yr old wife. She and her 12 year old son made me want to be a better man. I can still move up in my career because they are my motivation to do so. Our little one we had together 4 years later makes me want to be a better husband and father still. Love this article. I didn't want to be 40 yrs old not being able to chase my kids around.

 
most people go through life blind, or partially.

+Eric Powell - that's true, if you believe that all women are essentially interchangeable, and all you have to do is go out and shop for a good one. I think the point of this post is that there are opportunities - i.e. people - that will never occur again, and that you should choose carefully which ones you're letting pass by. 
 
One's thirties are good years for realizing that JAH is your only true friend.
 
+Franc Hernadez I'm a bit older than "24" with probably more mileage in life. I'm only expressing what I've lived in my life and my view of it looking backwards in time.
 
If have planned to get married by mid if 30's but effectively I did by mid of 20's. My career plans was slowing down everyday since also when I have got my daughter. But now when I am in the mid 30's already I admit that my plans was wrong as these lovely moments I spend with my little family are priceless. Love is love and when it comes it is unstoppable and if we force it back we will live the rest if our life regretting it.
 
We'd definitely be happier with that special someone, but for those in their 20's it must be a choice tough to find work and to have that +1. Those who are older may be more financially secure...or maybe not. Point is, one might want a bit of security first. Otherwise, how does one pay for gadgets and pay for dates?
 
Sometime work is the only real choice some of us get.  Either we can focus on that or drift through our lives as a slacker.
