EPISODE 417: Time Off

“You can have anything you want in life, but you can’t have everything.” Most of our biggest dreams are totally unsustainable, but they come with a price. Want six-pack abs? Are you willing to skip carbs and spend 2 hours a day in the gym each day?

Want a 7-figure bank balance? Are you up for 70-hour work weeks for the next 10 years? Want to start your own business and work for yourself? Are you prepared to become your own worst boss?

I love my work and family. I rarely dream about leisure. And yet, I need it. We all need to rest and recharge. We need to step back so we can step back in more fully. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet the author of the new book, Time Off: A Practical Guide to Building Your Rest Ethic and Finding Success Without the Stress.

  • How the future of work might look more like leisure
