Balance can ruin a career, and it can save a career.
I heard a story about Walt Disney’s wife, secretary and even his physician, all saying, “Walt, you need to get a hobby or you’ll work yourself into an early grave.”
Having the distraction of a hobby can actually make you sharper, more focused, more creative, more observant.
And if your hobby not only fuels your passion, but also teaches you more than you could have ever imagined, imagine that!
People who study Walt Disney’s life know that he was labeled by many as crazy. And that he insisted on nothing short of perfection. Always aim for perfection he’d say, and settle for excellence.
This is how life works. We face countless challenges. People may call us crazy, demanding.
They may also call us passionate, purposeful, visionary.
A real, work life saver.
