“The Frenchman works until he can play. The American works until he can’t play; and then thanks the devil, his master, that he is donkey enough to die in harness. But the Englishman, as he has since become, works until he can pretend that he never worked at all.”
― G.K. Chesterton, Eugenics and Other Evils: An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized State
We found this article over at inc.com which did not surprise us with a survey that claimed:
Almost one in four, 24.6 percent, say they receive work emails on their mobile devices. Of those, 35 percent say they spend an hour a day or more checking email. That adds up to more than 30 days a year — three times as much as the typical American spends on vacation.
In an age when so many of us work from home it becomes obvious the lines between work and play are blurring. It is important that we learn to separate the two lest we overwork… or overplay.
