All Work and No Play

27 September 2010

To everything there is a season – a time to work and a time to rest from one’s labors.

“What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.”

Right now I have a very determined focus on some very specific goals in my life. I am spending almost all my time working on the accounts of my clients and striving to help them be successful. I am also using the limited free time that I have to be a good friend, a good brother, and most importantly a strong support to my bestest friend.

With all of these activities there isn’t time left over to read and write as much as I would enjoy doing. Nor is there time to go and play and have fun with people like I have grown accustomed to over the past couple of years. For four months now I have been intensely focused on my work and I am making great strides as we move forward.

This area of my life has been neglected for some time, so the past few months have been very good for me, and hopefully are good for our clients as well. As I look to re-balance my life by focusing on this particular area I feel very optimistic about how things are coming together.

To everything there is a season – “a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.” And right now I am planting!
