Some of you might be company owners. Did some of you sacrifice everything for their business and dream but because they sacrificed it all to be wealthy and secure the futur of their family’s. Do some of you don’t have a social life outside of your lodge not that i think it is bad. I am asking because i think of sacrificing some things to build a company. But i am scared that after a while of sacrificing myself i might just make donations to differant places. Instead of sacrificing less and have a more fufilled life. Not that i am trying to say that the time past in a lodge with your brothers is bad and not fufilling enough. Just asking not saying all you have is boring time and called friends only when you do big donations to charity’s.

We have a symbol that teaches us to divide our time correctly so that all part of a full life can be achieved.  If you consider the time spent building a business to be a sacrifice rather than a joy you look forward to then you are in the wrong business.

It is all about finding balance.  I’m not really sure what this question has to do with Freemasonry though.  It’s more just a general question about work/life balance.

Yeap

I divide my day evenly, 1/3 of the day is working at the business, 1/3 is doing paperwork for the business, 1/3 is for extra time at the business and another 1/3 is for making sure the business is running smoothly.

I am sorry for the last part because i like to help people in need it makes me happy. I was saying this because my grandfather gave a 50000 dollar donation to the otterbein college and older i think we would (our family) would of needed that money to help us threw life. P.s he was a VP of Liberty Mutual insurance company and his name is James Heinisch and died a few years back.
