By any reasonable standard, Sheryl Sandberg is a highly successful executive, in both the private and public sectors. Currently the chief operating officer at Facebook, she's a former vice president at Google, and was chief of staff at the Treasury Department during the Clinton administration.
Now she's going public with a secret: She leaves work at 5:30 every day to have dinner with her kids.
Of course, as Sandberg explains in the video below, it's not as though she works a strict eight-hour schedule: She makes sure to fire off e-mails early in the morning and late at night to send the message that she's on the job. And it's telling that it took literally years for her to go public with her secret.
