Quite often when travelling I have been asked; ”Business or pleasure?” If the question comes from a hotel concierge I know the intentions are to improve the service related to my stay. He wants to give me the best information to make my stay smooth, pleasant and comfortable.
If the question comes from a complete stranger in a bar I know it is just something to kick start a conversation. And if the question comes from a taxi driver I know it also is just for small talk.
I tend to travel for both business and pleasure. I guess I also could say I want my travel through life to be both business and pleasure. In my everyday life there is a lot of business, but there is also pleasure. I enjoy working, I enjoy meeting with people and I enjoy accomplishing something; Even if it is just preparing lunch for some friends or picking up somebody at the airport.
Life is full of both. Business and pleasure.
I decide to take pleasure in my everyday life. I am not longing for the Fridays to arrive. I want to enjoy the workdays as well. Do I get tired? Of course. Do I get bored? Of course. But I can also get bored on holidays or when I am supposed to be amused. It is a matter of enjoying the moment. I guess we all are challenged by the phrase; ‘Carpe Diem’.
“Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.”
Business or pleasure?Bible ref: Proverbs 6,6-8 Annonser
