This article is a fantastic reminder to live our whole lives, not just our work lives.

So ask yourself this: Who would you be if work was no longer the axis of your life? How would your relationship with your close friends and family change, and what role would you serve within your community at large? Whom would you support, how would you interact with the world, and what would you fight for?

I love how the article touches on what I call “hobbies for the hell of it“:

A real hobby isn’t a way to adorn your personality, or perform to masquerade your class status. It’s just something you like to do, full stop.

This post is ringing a lot of bells for me in this phase of my life.
