Kevin Willett says success is no fun if you’re too tired and lonely to enjoy it.
I had today off. I went on a day trip with my Wife and Mother-in-Law and had some fun. In the past, I never would have thought of taking days off, because like most people, I listened to the gurus. They tell us that we have to hustle and grind and work all the time to be successful. I have learned the hard way that there is a time to work hard, but you need to find balance in your life and make time for family and friends. We let relationships slip because we think there will be time later to have fun, once we are successful and reach our goals. But sadly that is not always true. There was a point in my life when I did work seven days a week because I thought I needed to. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, I ended up becoming burnt out and had to take a step back. Please don’t let this happen to you. Please do not listen to the gurus. Find balance in your life. It is no fun to be successful if you do not have people to share your success with.
