Since, I can't really do the three column thing well, here, in my blog, I have presented my method for success at achieving children before menopause in the horizontal, three-row sequence shown below.
Objective 1: Achieve kids, someday.
Three reasons why: They're cute; Don't want to die without family to come to my funeral; and the possibility of raising them to become wealthy and sucessful so I can live off them in my old age.
Three obstacles to achieving kids, someday: Lawschool, Legal Career, and (this one's the biggy) Senior Partner of the law firm where I will work one day.
Three ways to overcome obstacles: Graduate from lawschool before ovaries rot. Avoid a salaried position at a big firm. Swap desks with Legal Secretary of Senior Partner in small law firm where I will work one day; Home by 6pm or else overtime kicks in.
If you or anyone you know has managed to keep a Senior Partner from sidetracking plans for children, I'd like to hear about it.
Objectives 2 & 3: TBA.
