Don’t Live For The Weekend - Nerdful Mind #3

February 3, 2020 by Simon Mannes


I hope you had a great weekend! Most of us spend most of our time working, so weekends are an opportunity to spend time with family and friends or work on personal projects.

Time always moves forward, and no money in the world can buy us time back that we spent doing things we don’t enjoy. With each moment that passes, we lose a moment that we can never get back.

We don’t live to work, we work to live.

Work allows me to pay my bills, get food on the table, and pay for some hobbies. I try to save energy and time for my hobbies, personal projects, and my loved ones. Weekends are great. But they shouldn’t be the only thing we live for.
