Recreation That Recreates?

To me ... golf isn't "fun."

We spend billions every year on recreation. It’s supposed to have restorative powers … bring new life. Is your recreation bringing you anything  “new?”

How about a refreshed attitude or perspective? How does it make you feel about yourself? Today we’ll look at a way to spend time off that leaves me fired-up and encouraged … every single time. Hint: It’s not golf.

Recreation ... maybe not what you think.

We were fortunate to chat with someone not too long ago, whose weekend “recreational” activities helped lead him to his longer-term 2nd half gig. Click here to watch.

What do you do when you’re not working? Does it make you feel “new” or “refreshed?”

    $7.00 and rewarded? It is a no-brainer! Serving others is truly refreshing. I try to find time to serve often! Who has $100.00 and six hours to waste to end up feeling frustrated? Not me. And even if I did, WHY would I?
    Good stuff my friend!

    Oh man, you are so right on this topic. Too bad it takes getting to later in life to figure this out!

      Marsha … Multiple close friends had to tell me I was a jack-wagon on the course before I woke up and smelled the coffee. I’m trying to mend my ways before I run all of em off.

    Hey Doug, I am finding this is so true! I have been serving at our church’s care center/food pantry and I leave feeling energized and with more perspective on the big picture in life!

      So are you giving up golf?
