Here is my thought for the day.... Don't get so wrapped up in making money and working that you forget to live and enjoy life.

We already have a class of people who live like that, they live and enjoy life and get their welfare check every month.

LOL,
does coming home from dinner with the family on Friday night then pumping out briefing papers (due Monday, advised 2PM Friday), 2-1/2 hours phone and emails on Sunday, and a day off with my wife with another 2-1/2 hours of interuptions Monday count as balance ?

Not much choice in the matter if you want to get paid.

Good-do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life.

Better-Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.

Best-A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

After loosing one friend to liver cancer at 65 yrs of age,and another to brain cancer at 62, and having way too many co-workers work until they died, I retired from the port of Houston at 62 and a half. If I had stayed on until 65 I would another $300k in wages made. Tell that to my friend who died of liver cancer....

Think about roughly 8 hrs of sleep, 8 hrs of work (rounded down, not including lunch, commute, etc, but also saying 7 days/week)

I think its a delicate balance. You do need to take time to enjoy life and time with friends and family. I feel today we dont have enough time off. Does you good to take a break and just relax.

Its absolutely important to value family and friends. And to not be such a workaholic that you let that slip away.

Ditto for your health. In many ways its easier to forget about health than family.

But hard work allows you to have the flexibility and means to support your family well, pay for the good and memorable times, and ensure lower stress (in many situations, job dependent).

Its all a balance. I like the concept of work hard, play hard.
