Did you know that the old school poet Horace wrote about the balance between otium and negotium in his poems? Thats the balance between pleasure and business to you or me. Also known as the work/life balance I’ve blogged about before. What I find interesting is the Latin for pleasure/leisure is Otium and business/work is Negotium or put another way Not-pleasure! I just quite like the fact that our ancient ancestors bitched about work just as much as we do.
