Wil Wheaton has an excellent post about letting loose and taking last Monday off work to have some fun on Talk Like A Pirate Day. Best of all is this sage bit of advice that he had acquired a while back but just remembered.
Don’t let your work become your life, because when work isn’t happening, then what do you have?
I’ve got to remember that! Maybe even make up a poster and hang it on the wall in my den.
