Rule 80: Put things in perspective

Ex-Banker & Businesswoman, Chief (Mrs.) Dokpesi 

When
all is said and done, it is only a job. It ain’t your health, your love, your
family, your children, your life or your soul. 
If, by the way, it is any of these things then you really have gone
baldy wrong along the way.

Your
job is just a job. Yes, I know you need the money etc., etc. But it is just a
job and there are others.
Having
a bad day at work shouldn’t cause you to:
·                   
Lose
sleep
·                   
Go
off your food
·                   
Lose
your sex drive
·                   
Smoke
more
·                   
Drink
more
·                   
 Take drugs
·                   
Be
more irritable
·                   
Get
depressed
·                   
Get
stressed.

 “Put your family
first.  Spend time with your children –
they will grow up so fast you will miss their precious childhood if you work
your way through it – believe me I have seen my children grow up and it is so
swift it is terrifying”

But
you’d be surprised how often these things are done by people because they have
had a bad day.  Yes, they may have had a
whole series of bad days.  But taken one
by one, it is just a bad day.  You have
to learn to switch off, relax, not take it so seriously, enjoy it more, and put
things into perspective.

“YOU HAVE
TO LEARN TO SWITCH OFF, RELAX, NOT TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY, ENJOY IT MORE, AND PUT
THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE”.

Get
a hobby, get a life.  You must work to
live, not live to work.  Don’t take stuff
home with you – learn to be assertive and say no.  Put your family first.  Spend time with your children – they will
grow up so fast you will miss their precious childhood if you work your way
through it – believe me I have seen my children grow up and it is so swift it
is terrifying.  It may seem slow and
stressful at the time, but it zips past and then is irrecoverably gone – and
you missed it because you were doing paperwork of any evening or attending
another boring bloody conference at the weekend.
It
is just a job.
