How much work is too much?

Okay, it’s official, I have too much to do at work too.


I’ve made a concerted effort to cut down on the number of projects at home, but it seems that there is a cosmic force at work with the sole desire to see me have a mental breakdown. 


So, how do I deal? 


Step one, find some clever quotes:



All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.
Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important.
Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970)
Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?
Edgar Bergen (1903 – 1978)
Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
Horace (65 BC – 8 BC)
I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)

Step two, remember I’m going to Florida soon to sit on the beach and do nothing at all.


Bah!  Whining is for four-year-olds. :p
