You Are Not Your Career; it is Only Your Reflection in the Business World

I sometimes observe people talking for hours about their jobs as if their life is nothing more than their jobs. In one of my first jobs, when I met with the big boss, he/she advised me of two things. The first one was, “Be careful of the ones who insist on never making any mistakes; most probably they do nothing and just sit about,” and the second one was, “We will not benefit from people who do not spare time for themselves and have nothing else to do in their lives apart from their work. If they do not have the ability to spare time for themselves, then how are they going to manage our jobs?” Since then, I especially cared about the balance of my work and my other existence in life. Every healthy existence should have an aspect other than work. As a hobby, socially, as love etc.
