Pyrrhic - Count the cost

Pyrrhic

 

I came across this word this morning while researching some articles on wills and the second will. The second will has become a concern in the legal and estate planning world recently. 

More direction is required and I suspect more cases will come forward for dissection. 

pyr·rhic1
/ˈpirik/
adjective
  1. (of a victory) won at too great a cost to have been worthwhile for the victor.
     
    How many things have we done that we just paid too much for to be right? It’s a good question, count the cost. Families, Friendships, Business, Health,    Ideals, a Soul.  Some things are priceless , some are pointless, some you just have to go with the flow and find peace down the river. 
     
     
    Every once and awhile, you have seal up the holes for the winter, batten down the hatches and wait for winter to pass, your spring is just around the corner.  Get ready to plant, spring time, summer and then harvest time will present itself once again.

6. I cut myself some slack.

5. I log out of my email during a particularly pressing project.

4. I eat well.


In addition to helping you maintain a healthy weight, eating well helps increase energy levels as well as your ability to focus. What "eating well" looks like will differ to everyone, but for me it includes a lot of fresh vegetables, a moderate amount of protein, and a diet that's high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates and sugar, which can cause crashes in excess.

3. I listen to ASMR videos on YouTube. ( I like this, I actuay invested in Premium YouTube so I can listen and work on my phone without it cutting out, speakers to hear better as well)

2. I get up from my desk at least once an hour.

1. I set a schedule.

 

Personally I work from home a bit, mainly when I am doing research and planning for my  meeting schedules and business planning.  Tips 2-3-4-6 are what I practice :)

Be blessed

Word of the day  - Recalcitrant

Code for "Stubborn like a Mule " !

1 : obstinately defiant of authority or restraint
2 a : difficult to manage or operate
b : not responsive to treatment
c : resistant

Did You Know?
Long before any human was dubbed "recalcitrant" in English (that first occurred in the 18th century), there were stubborn mules (and horses) kicking back their heels. The ancient Romans noted as much (Pliny the Elder among them), and they had a word for it: recalcitrare, which literally means "to kick back." (Its root calc-, meaning "heel," is also the root of calcaneus, the large bone of the heel in humans.) Certainly Roman citizens in Pliny's time were sometimes willful and hardheaded—as attested by various Latin words meaning "stubborn"—but it wasn't until later that writers of Late Latin applied recalcitrare and its derivative adjective to humans who were stubborn as mules.
