No matter how you decide to balance your work and non-work life

Yesterday’s Conversation Café got me to thinking about balancing work and non-work activities in my life. What are the things I want to do with my life, as Anne put it, ‘not many people lie on their death bed wishing they had done more housework’.

Life is awfully short, an average of 616,320 hours for a standard 72 year life span! Of that you will spend an average of 41,600 hours working (20 years at 8 hours a day) and 184,896 hours asleep! That only leaves approximately 389,824 hours to do what you like to do (and that doesn’t include any schooling).

No matter what/how you decide to balance your life, enjoy it! It really is short, live it how you choose too.
