    Take Time Off

    Time’s a wast’n. Life is flying by. I need to fill every fifteen minute segment with activity to reach my goal by retirement. If I had time, I would play with my kids, or spend a quiet evening with of my spouse. You know my competitor will get ahead of me if I’m not chasing that elusive goal. I know you’re not surprised at this attitude because many of your friends follow this.

    The Bible says six days we shall work and the seventh is for rest. One fast food restaurant has reached gross sales of 3 billion dollars (2013) while being closed every Sunday. Your sales or progress might accelerate if you took every Sunday off and/or took weekend vacations with the family. Resting the body weekly will help you end your life in a healthy physical condition.

    Abusing the body with unnecessary stress is not wise. After three quarters of a century of living, the author is stating that this plan is ineffective. At the end of life, the things you have done for God and family turn out to be truly valuable. Taking time for family and meditation is a savvy move for an ambitious executive, as well as a productive employee.
