This is so important, and often overlooked or not realized until late in life. The man makes the job, the job doesn’t make the man.
Think about that. Let it swirl around your head, and if you have time, meditate on it. Especially you youngsters. There are lots of men and women in this country who retire after thirty-five or forty years of work, and their lives are empty.
Because as they come to find out, the job they had provided them with everything they needed, including a sense of personal fulfillment. Now, at the age of retirement, when they should be ready to take the next step into the last phase of their lives, they’re lost and don’t know what to do with themselves.
Work-life balance is becoming more important than ever. Money is important, and we all need a good amount of it coming in consistently, but keep this in mind, while working and earning money is important, it’s not the only thing. Personal health and faith-based pursuits are often overlooked but just as important.
