Answer: Work fewer hours.
Before you let out a guttural scream, peek at the article below. I think you’ll enjoy this article by Sean Kim (March 11, 2014) as much as I did. It’s called Work to live. Don’t live to work.
Think it through
- What was Ford’s 888 Rule? Was it a successful, strategic move?
- Despite the fact that numerous studies find a work week beyond 40 hours makes people less effective and productive, most refuse to believe it. Are you among the dissenters? (Parenting does not fit easily into 8 hours. Kiddos don’t have an on/off switch. How does a stay-at-home parent figure out this balance? I think it’s worth the effort to wrestle this one through, knowing there are no cookie-cutter answers.) Any thoughts on this?
- Which one of Sean’s 5 Rules is worth a try this week?
Onward, dear friends. Run hard. Break a sweat. Find your focus. Then, rest well—feet up, guilt- free.
First time here?
Welcome! We’re a group that gathers around the theme, “There has to be a better way.” We’re finding it in the 4-word mission statement, “Run hard. Rest well.”
- It’s a journey into the heart of God. It comes our way through an on-going exploration of four biblical rhythms that revive, replenish and restore: Sabbath Keeping, Sleep (and other simple stress-reducers), Stillness—personal retreat, and Solitude—personal retreat.
- It’s an expedition that challenges us at every turn. It convicts us in deep, tender places. It alters the our priorities and plans. It’s not for the faint of heart.
- It’s adventure at its best – as we learn to run the race in a power not our own.
