Are you a work-a-holic?

IMG_3379Here is my view last night. My girlfriend’s twins wanted to come to the beach one last time (well, maybe the last) with a friend. I woke up Wednesday and after meditating find out we are leaving for the beach in an hour.

We can have spur-of-the-moment trips like this, but usually I get a bit more notice. So off to the beach. With the Internet and a laptop I can work anywhere. The condo here has great wireless and I worked on my latest project code named Ocean Waves as I started it when we came to the beach for three months in December. It’s going to save many people a ton of money.

We watched “A Good Year” the first night. The London stock broker work-a-holic “retires” to a French winery. He learns that there is more to life than just work, even if it is inspired work. Life is so much richer with variety. Our friends out of the USA think that Americans are slaves. “The money, or your life.  It is a great movie that shows there is so much more to life.

I worked three hours this morning and most of that was listening to an educational course and implementing some things it talked about. I blogged about the audio.

I then published a guest blog from Rhonda Ryder about kids and the law of attraction. Promoted it to my lists and got quite a few comments. Comment and participate in the discussion.

Then I was off to the beach with the family. Read a non-business book. Played in the waves with the kids. Laid out in the sun. Had a great time. Then warmed up in the hot tub.

Are you a work-a-holic? Do you think you have to work all the time? I use to. It didn’t work for me. I didn’t have time to enjoy life. I didn’t have time to think. I didn’t have time to let inspiration come to me. I failed. Repeatly. And it wasn’t fun. I now focus on what I want to get done and not all of it is business. I am more successful now. I feel great. The more I enjoy life the more inspired I get and the more successful I get. I go fast but I also have a life. Money loves speed but you have to have a life otherwise you’re just a slave to your own company or worse someone else’s.

If you are working all the time and/or a work-a-holic you are doing something wrong. Your business plan is flawed, majorly. Fix your business plan and it’ll fix your life.  Watch the movie “A Good Year”.

So enjoy life. You’ll make more money and live a lot longer.
