One of the sites I keep coming across in my travels through the BlogExplosionosphere is titled "Reflections of a Business-Driven Life". Every time I read that title (I can't bring myself to read any articles in a site with that title), I'm saddened. Saddened by the fact that anyone would let business drive his or her life. No disrespect intended to the owner / author of that particular site; if business is your thing, then enjoy. But of late, I have emerged from a situation where the "business-driven life" was the norm, and was expected. I am happy that I am no longer involved in that situation. In my current situation, "life" is the norm. Life outside of business. Life lived for the purpose of living for oneself and/or one's family. Where the purpose of employment is to provide the means by which one can support one's life, not to provide the purpose or motivation or drive for life.
I am saddened by those for whom business provides the drive for his or her life.
Anyone else's thoughts?
