Remember All work and No Play makes

I believe the saying goes ‘All work and No play makes Jack a dull boy’ in fact, I believe that all work and no play destroys your ability to enjoy your work and your play.

Remember if your life has no sense of purpose beyond work some time maybe soon, maybe later, you will hit a wall where you will stand with either your back against the wall or your nose pushed into it wondering ‘what is life all about?’

Choose to prepare ahead of time to avoid a life that has no sense of purpose beyond work by making sure of the following:

One
Make sure you have more than financial, material, career and work based goals that you review daily. In your goal achievement action steps that you write in your day planner make sure you have spiritual, family/friendship and physical goals to achieve each day. For example, make an appointment each day with yourself like you would with a business client to do some inspiring reading or
enjoy a long conversation with your spouse or a close friend or to get out and enjoy a walk in the fresh air (if possible do all these!) These goal cards can help you.

Two
Put these spiritual, family/friendship and physical goals in your day planner weeks ahead so you plan your work day around it. Make sure you always have your day planner on hand when you make any new appointments so you avoid a conflicting appointment or simply confirm the new appointment later.

Three
Review your non-career, non-work, non-financial goals daily along
with all your other goals.
