Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance
The old adage about all work and no play is so true. If you put all your effort into working and forget to have fun, you will likely bore yourself and those around you. And you will probably get so burnt out that you won’t be able to keep up with the work either.
It often seems the happiest among us are those who live by the rule of work hard and play harder. Making time for family, friends, and hobbies and activities you enjoy is essential, not only so that you can live a fulfilling life, but also so that you can be your best at work as well.
You should not define yourself by your career. Even if you love your job, human beings were not designed to live a life totally devoid of fun.
Working too many hours, and neglecting the other side of your personality, can be devastating to your mind, body, and soul, not to mention your relationships. If you find yourself working too hard, take a step back reevaluate what’s important, and try to achieve a more suitable balance in your life.
Paying attention to your needs and desires outside of work will likely help you to be more successful at your job as well.
