Take a Break

Rhino was in the business of overworking himself. There wasn’t a time during the day that he either wasn’t working, having meetings or generally thinking about something related to work. And by the end of each month he was completely and utterly exhausted. Finally when he wife visited him for lunch and heard him talking nonstop about his business she decided there needed to be a balance.

Deal With Your Emotions
