Along the way this Saturday morning though I stopped and read an article "What Most Successful People Do With Their Weekends" Of course I expected to read about a mixture of work and play; but mostly work. This is where my head has been at for about 4 years folks so bear with me... I was surprised the article emphasized relaxation. Getting some fresh air, doing other things you enjoy, spending time with family and friends can recharge your batteries. A run or a hike in nature can clear your head and help you work thru things that may have stumped you sitting behind a computer. Even planning a fun event or a vacation can be relaxing and bring happiness.
Funny thing is I know this. I used to start every day like this:
And I shared it with wild critters like this:
Next to the water like this:
And then something happened.
My little business took off like gangbusters because I work on the weekends!
Trust me, I'm getting better at finding some balance; I do take time to play. But a little work every day ~ especially when it is something you love doing ~ never hurt anyone. And building something totally on my own from the ground up ~ making something out of nothing ~ is extremely rewarding. Successful is not a word I ever thought I would associate with myself but dammit, I think I'm getting there. And Zelda would agree ~ we're having a helluva' good time along the way.
