Q: I feel guilty taking a holiday when I have so much to do. Isn’t it fitting to keep working on Labor Day?
A: Thomas Edison famously said “There is no substitute for hard work.” Even so, whether you are working hard in your job or working hard to find one, I do hope you will take a break today to enjoy the holiday that actually celebrates hard work.
Comic Erma Bombeck once called guilt “the gift that keeps on giving.” But the true renewing gift, in order to be able to better handle your job or your job search, is allowing yourself to refresh your energy.
So…from me and my family to you and yours…enjoy a Happy Labor Day.
