Some people place a bit too much importance on money and lose sight of what is really important in life.
They trade in their health, their relationships, and their free time in order to obtain more money.
But it never is enough money and when you look back on your life you regret all of the things you lost in pursuit of that money. My HVAC rep friend told me about a local contractor that worked 80 hours a week and ended up in the hospital from all of the stress. Some people toss away their whole life, spending all of it in the office, only to find out in the end that the result would have been the same even if they didn’t spend all that time working. I like to work for the HVAC business near me, doing a/c installs and repairs, but I only work about 20 hours a week. I’m not sacrificing much of my free time as there is not much going on in the early afternoons when I am working. I also get to meet a lot of cool people when I go to a home to do an HVAC system repair or tune-up. I like to help people and get them feeling comfortable again as soon as possible. Most people are very grateful when I get their air conditioning or heating working on a hot or cold day. It also makes me feel really good knowing I helped someone out that day. I know what it is like to not have climate control in the home as it has happened to me before.
