You hear entrepreneurs say this all the time. Work hard! Play hard! In fact, its a phrase assigned to many successful people.

Alas, for many it really means work hard, work hard, work hard, work hard. Take a holiday in the south somewhere and work hard while youre there.

To my way of thinking, work hard, play hard starts at your daytimer. Whether its a paper version or an electronic version, outlook or daytimer, it begins right there.

What helps is to think of yourself having just six months left in your life. Six definitive months. What are the things you would want to achieve during those final six months? Write them down.
