When all is said and done, it is only a job. It ain’t your health, your love, your family, your children, your life or your soul.  If, by the way, it is any of these things then you really have gone baldy wrong along the way.


Your job is just a job. Yes, I know you need the money etc., etc. But it is just a job and there are others.

Having a bad day at work shouldn’t cause you to:
·                    Lose sleep
·                    Go off your food
·                    Lose your sex drive
·                    Smoke more
·                    Drink more
·                     Take drugs
·                    Be more irritable
·                    Get depressed
·                    Get stressed.


 “Put your family first.  Spend time with your children – they will grow up so fast you will miss their precious childhood if you work your way through it – believe me I have seen my children grow up and it is so swift it is terrifying”

But you’d be surprised how often these things are done by people because they have had a bad day.  Yes, they may have had a whole series of bad days.  But taken one by one, it is just a bad day.  You have to learn to switch off, relax, not take it so seriously, enjoy it more, and put things into perspective.

“YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO SWITCH OFF, RELAX, NOT TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY, ENJOY IT MORE, AND PUT THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE”.

Get a hobby, get a life.  You must work to live, not live to work.  Don’t take stuff home with you – learn to be assertive and say no.  Put your family first.  Spend time with your children – they will grow up so fast you will miss their precious childhood if you work your way through it – believe me I have seen my children grow up and it is so swift it is terrifying.  It may seem slow and stressful at the time, but it zips past and then is irrecoverably gone – and you missed it because you were doing paperwork of any evening or attending another boring bloody conference at the weekend.

It is just a job.
