Spring and summer are wonderful times of the year, warm weather, clear skies, long days and plenty of outdoor activities to keep us busy.

Unfortunately, fewer of us enjoy it every year.  Unless you’re a kid, most of us never get to really enjoy spring and summer.  We’re working.  We’re in school.  We’re busy.  We just don’t have time.

Listen to me … we all have time.  We have time to take a day and enjoy life.  We have time to take our children to the park.  We have time to spend with our spouse.  We have time for a hike.  We have time for all these things, if we make time.  The problem is that most people don’t make the time to enjoy life and what it has to offer – especially business professionals as we like to call ourselves.

We need to run our company.  We need to sell the next house.  We need to finish the next project.

Life isn’t supposed to work that way.  We should make time and take time every week to enjoy our spouses, our children, our family.  What’s the point in working to live if you never get to the “living” part?  We have warped ourselves into a society that work 60 hours a week just to make ends meet and 80 hours to take that vacation.

The problem is that when the time comes, many of us don’t take the vacation.  How many people do you know that have sent their family on a vacation and stayed home to work because of that “big deal” or “important project” that can’t wait?  I’m sure we all know someone.

Take time to enjoy life.  Take time to enjoy family.  Take time to live.
