10. Stewart D. Friedman "Take the Four-Way View": Friedman, a highly acclaimed teacher and scholar from the University of Pennsylvania, writes in the style of a self-help therapist. His article makes the argument that work, for most people, becomes the center of their life. This can have many negative effects. His essay describes some success individuals have had in establishing separate domains to help them balance and engage each part of their life to get the most out of their efforts. His solution is for individuals to identify and "clarify what is important to you" and "making them [values] come alive in your everyday actions at work, at home, in the community, and for your self" (884). Friedman's position on "What are you working for?" is an implicit one. He would argue that many Americans are working for not enough in the sense that they value work too much and do not place as much importance on the other values.
