I recently thought about the word “WORK”. Here is what I found:
As a noun the word means: An activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose. It also means mental or physical activity as a means of earning income; as well as employment.
The opposite (Antonyms) of “Work” are: fun, laziness, unemployment, entertainment, failure, loss, idleness.
Finding the right balance between “work” and it’s “antonyms” is important in all of our lives.
Most of us have times in our lives where “work” is dominant. These are usually the times when we build the resources to allow the “antonyms” to become dominant. When the “antonyms” are dominant it takes a lot of motivation to return to a truly balanced life.
Often that motivation is fear-based: Fear of failure, hunger, housing, enough “antonyms”, etc.
Entrepreneurs and employees alike need to find the appropriate balance for themselves at various stages of their lives. All “Work” or All “Antonyms” does not make a healthy member of society.
Are you taking care of yourself and your employees?
