My Work is My Play
However, I was reminded of an early mentor of mine who was one of the founders of the Holiday Inn chain of hotels. This was his mantra that he lived by and from what I have read he looks like he had life balance and life success. If you need some business encouragement read all you can find on the Holiday Inn story and its co-founders Wallace Johnson (Work is my Play) and Kemmons Wilson (Half Luck and Half Brains).
So what if you really struggle with the concept of work being that much fun. My suggestion to you then is to;
1) seek another opportunity. In doing so you will be "alive" and that is what this world needs. People who are fully engaged and alive.
2) plan "play time" into your schedule. Book holidays and down time. We must always remember that this life is a journey, Our destination is heaven...so that is taken care of...but our time here on earth is all about the journey. Make sure you live a life of adventure. It is all over too soon...so make your life count each day.
A recent holiday bought me in touch with an local entrepreneur. He told me that his Dad played with him all the time and then when the business got too busy, he stopped playing. My entrepreneur friend decided that he would never do that...he would play all the time with his kids. He has invested in boats and ATV's and has never regretted the family time he has had with his children. This was helpful for me because I look at these as "boy toys" and it has given me freedom to relook at investing in a Sea-doo for my family and friends enjoyment. (I will let you know the outcome of what happens on that one.) We are all learner's on this journey.
