Balancing work and play can be rather difficult today, especially if you don’t acknowledge your true desires. It’s all too easy to become so wrapped up in meeting your obligations that you suppress your need for downtime. Unfortunately, your unexpressed feelings could turn to resentment, making it harder to find enjoyment even after you are off the clock. Be careful about blaming anyone else for your lackadaisical time management. Thankfully, you can still make room for pleasure if you think ahead. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
