You’ve heard the oft-repeated saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” The phrase is so popular because it’s true!
If all you do is work, you become one-dimensional. Boring. And, probably bored yourself. You’re actually not doing yourself, or your employer, any favors by being married to your job to the exclusion of everything else.
If you want to progress in your work, it’s important to step away from it and participated in non-work activities you enjoy. You’ll be healthier, happier, and more creative!
