Yesterday the New York Times had in interesting article by a fellow that seems to have worked out some of the keys to life.
Chief executive of the ING Group, Amsterdam, Edwald Kist writes:
As an adult, I've come to believe in a work-life balance. There's more on earth than just money.
I keep my body healthy with sports. And I set an example for my employees by engaging in activities outside the office. I'm not impressed by workaholics.
I've learned to be very efficient. In my early years, I took speed-reading courses. I can boil down my whole job to four categories: important things and unimportant things, urgent things and not-urgent things. The slow, unimportant things I leave to one side; many solve themselves.
