There are times when we get so consumed with professional success that we allow work to overtake our lives without even meaning to. Success isn’t just about money, it is so much more. Relationships are important, leisure and family time are important, volunteering is important, professional development and self improvement are important.
When work overtakes your life, how do you correct the problem?
Focus on the other things that matter in life. My hobbies are digital photography and travelling, yet besides the odd out-of-town trips for a few hours, I haven’t done any serious travelling since 2007 when I went to China and New York City. And my digital photography? I have taken photos, but not with the thought and concentration as in the past.
To get back on track, tomorrow I’m going to Taste of the Danforth with a Toronto photography meet-up group. It’s a small step, but that’s okay because smalls steps taken amount to a giant leap.
