Ben Franklin was my first hero.
I read his book Benjamin Franklin’s The Art of Virtue: His Formula for Successful Living when I was a kid.
Ben felt a perfect day was:
8 hours of work
8 hours of play
and lastly 8 hours of sleep
3 x 8 = 24 hours
That is so elegant and simple, how many of us do this though?
Furthermore if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. I am so glad I read that when I was young.
Life is about balance and what is more balanced than Ben’s perfect day?
Stop working so much! Being a workaholic is not something to be proud of. Workaholics for example, lack balance. Imbalance is a weakness that sooner or later causes problems. The first problem is consistency in performance.
