Last night I dreamt about work. This post is an early reminder not to forget about playing.
I’ve seen people before and after burnouts. They’re never the same. Trust me, you don’t want this.
I thought I was pretty good at maintaining work-life balance (I have several hobbies) but, turns out that, even if something isn’t work, it can feel like work (like checking the Internet when you work online…).
A few rules I’m setting for myself starting today…
You can’t burn life without burning yourself. And, frankly, is that really what you’re after?
If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution (Emma Goldman).
If the work you’re trying to do can’t possibly be done within 40-50 hours a week, is that really what you want to be doing?
