What’s It For?

So many people work hard to make a living but in the process they forget to have a life.

While work is definitely enjoyable and fulfilling, it is dangerous to make it the major cornerstone of your life.

Success is defined in so many different ways; fiscally, emotionally, spiritualy, visually, physically, socially, and randomly. So why would we try and meet all of these needs at the one place?

A recent conversation included the statement, “my work is my hobby.” This is a lie.

It is a self-deception to help justify the commitment to the job or the number of hours worked. It is important to have a hobby outside the workplace to let the mind reinvigorate, let the body refresh and let the spirit get reinspired.

So what’s your hobby, the thing that you do just for you?

If you don’t have one, then you have to ask yourself, “What’s it for?”
