Do you schedule time for work and play?
Why You Schedule Time For Work and Play? The Daily Doable – S1:E8

Welcome to the lightly edited transcript of the video. You’ll find a link to the video below.

Hi, this is Tim Maudlin. I would like to welcome you to another episode of The Daily Doable. Joining me today, is Ratchet. He has been waiting patiently for me to finish cutting firewood so we could go on our walk. I thought it would be a good opportunity to consider the topic of work and play.

I have a great quote for you from Louisa May Alcott. She said,

“Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life will become a beautiful success.”

I thought that was a really wise way to look at work and play.

Let’s go Ratchet. As I said, Ratchet has been waiting for me to finish cutting firewood. I don’t do that very often, but when I do, my rule of thumb is this. I cut until I get tired. There’s no sense having a chainsaw in my hands when I start to feel tired. I just don’t want to take a chance.

I’m still tired, but it’s a different kind of thing now. I’m having fun walking with Ratchet. This is our play time. He enjoys walking with me and I enjoy walking with him. But there’s also an added benefit to this playtime. My back is really sore and walking with him helps to loosen it back up.

Your Daily Doable is this. Make sure you schedule time for work AND you schedule time for play.

You want to be able to look back on your life with few your regrets because you balanced your life with work and play.

And also those who are younger who are listening to this, your life will be more pleasant if you learned to work and also learn to play when you’re young. It will serve you well.

Before we go, Ratchet and I would like to invite you to our Facebook group, Do What You Can Now as well as our website, DoWhatYouCanNow.com. I’ll put the link to both of those sites in the description for this video.

So until next time, this is Tim and Ratchet encouraging you to Do What You Can Now.

See you soon.

Bye.
