There’s life and there’s the job, right?

Sometimes it’s a change in perception that is required, rather than a change in circumstances, and work is not necessarily the enemy if it is managed correctly. And it can all be achieved without you having to trek through rain forests, climb a mountain or wear sackcloth. Lots of interesting links too.
