Happy Thanksgiving and random thoughts
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I resembled that remark for many, many years.
When I started my business, I completely devoted myself to it. I would work on Christmas, Thanksgiving and all the other major holidays we celebrate in this country. It may have only been for half a day but the point I'm making is it was work every day.
A few years ago, someone asked me what I liked to do for fun. At the time, I couldn't come up with one thing that didn't involve work and that was sad. I started to seek out something to enjoy and bicycling was my choice. It's now been four years that I took up cycling as my hobby.
Today, I'm celebrating Thanksgiving in my country with my family. There will be no trip to the office for me. I woke up early to prepare the Turkey and put it into the oven around 3AM to do its thing. By noon, my family will be sitting together and having a meal as one. By 3PM, I will be at my sisters home eating again with 23 other family members.
As hard as you work to make your business a success, remember to share time with your family and play whenever you can.
