Work Can Wait

Yesterday I was reminded of something pretty important… there are times that work can wait.

I had lunch plans with a former coworker (and now good friend).   We had been trying to do lunch for weeks but work and life always got in the way.

Work was crazy busy, so as I texted to see if we were still on to meet, in the back of my mind I was hoping it wouldn’t work out.   No dice.  He was free and “looking forward to catching up.”

I left the work behind and spent a great hour in conversation with a friend.   It was nice to get away and talk about things other than work.

Here’s the funny thing.   I actually think I ended up getting more done by taking that lunch break.   I returned more focused and my spirits were definitely lifted.

That’s how I was reminded that there are times that work can (and should) wait.  I was also reminded just how important having good friends is.

Is there a friend you need to have lunch with and catch up?
