Relaxation is important.


A joker shared his story....

In 1923, Who Was:

1. President of the largest steel company?
2.. President of the largest gas company?
3. President of the New York stock Exchange?
4. Greatest wheat speculator?
5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?
6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

These men were considered some of the worlds most successful of their days..
Now, 80 years later do you know what ultimately became of them?

The Answers:

1. The president of the largest steel company.
Charles Schwab, died a pauper.

2. The president of the largest gas company,
Edward Hopson, went insane.

3. The president of the NYSE, Richard Whitney,
was released from prison to die at home.

4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger,
died abroad, penniless.

5. The president of the Bank of International Settlement,
shot himself.

6 The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore,
also committed suicide

However, in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion
and the winner of the most important golf tournament, the US Open, was Gene Sarazen.
What became of him?
He played golf until he was 92,
died in 1999 at the age of 95.
He was financially secure at the time of his death.

The Moral: Fuck work... Play golf.

Hi bro,

This means 'More Work ..More Play'
balance and do take time to reward yourself by RELAXING.

Hi sis...

I'm going to have to disagree with your sister when she says "more work... more play." In my opinion, playing golf may have been this man's work, between golf tournaments, golf lessens and whatnot. So, I read this as do something that you enjoy everyday and it will make life worth living! I love my job, I get up everyday with a smile on my face knowing that I go to work and enjoy it! Unfortunately, many people go to work for a paycheck, and that is where we end up bored, insane, bored, tired, bored, ooh and did I mention bored? Keep life fun!
