Do you work to holiday, or holiday to work?

It’s pretty much a given you need to have a good rest in order to really work. Isn’t a holiday about having a good rest?

Is your holiday really for you, or does it set you up so you can keep on working so…you can have that holiday you really want, which…sets you up to do more work?

The old saying is ‘Don’t mix work with pleasure’. What if you need that holiday in order to keep working? Then it’s not really a holiday, is it? It’s just part of the job. Your just continually working.

If you think the reward for working is to rest and relax, it’s kind of a dragon eating its own tail, isn’t it?

    I find studying to be sufficiently rewarding so that if I take a long break, I want to get back to it. So, if studying is considered as work, I am indeed mixing fun and pleasure.

    I don’t work, and I also don’t holiday.

    I live a cold and dreary life currently.

    At most, I relax, but nothing too exciting…
