I recently spoke before a national conference of an organization made up of people whose job is to oversee the recreational activities for their fellow co-workers. One would think that this group was tuned in to personal time management and making sure that there was always a maintenance of balance between work and play, but I discovered that a number of convention attendees with whom I spoke after addressing the group, who told me that they needed to hear my message of life balance and priorities loudly and clearly.
They know very well that hard work pays off with the reward coming in the level of enjoyment in exactly how we use our personal time. I remember a wise man telling me about the difference between being rich and being wealthy. He explained that being rich means that you have money, while being wealthy is having the money and the time to enjoy it.
