Word Hard // Play Hard

7.08.2015

I've mentioned the St. Benedict medal I wear before. In my favorite TED talk (for now), Nigel Marsh quotes him as he introduces his ten-minute talk on work-life balance.



”I’D LIKE ALL OF YOU TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT, YOU WRETCHED WEAKLINGS, AND TAKE STOCK OF YOUR MISERABLE EXISTENCE”
ST. BENEDICT
5TH CENTURY

My major takeaway? Too often, we subject ourselves to "fitting it all" into a time frame that is either too limiting--a day--or too overwhelming--a lifetime. A week might help us preserve the balance we're all pursuing, both in our professional and personal lives.

Like today. Today, I'm happy we're halfway to Friday.
