Episode 25: Vacation

As a whole, we are bad at taking time off. We work a lot of holidays, we often take vacation payoffs instead of the time off (you know, if we are even offered it). And as a whole, this isn’t always the best idea. For one This job is extremely physically and mentally demanding sometimes, so time off just to heal is a good call. The other major point of contention here is that people who make way more money than you, and do way less than you take the time off that they are given. When we get paid for time off, we are getting paid less for that, so really the question becomes, what is your time actually worth. The other major point for taking time off is actually enjoying your life, taking time to spend time with the people who are important to you, and do the things that make you happy.

At the end of the day no ones car is worth your health, so take time to fix yourself.

Also Uncle Jimmy talks about child rearing and fishing.
