I've Got My Orders

Ok, so sometimes it's ok to follow religious leaders:

Pope: Don't work too hard
20/08/2006 16:36 - (SA)

Castelgandolfo - Too much work can be bad for you, even if you are the pope, Pope Benedict said on Sunday.

Speaking during his Sunday address at his summer residence south of Rome, the pope quoted from the writings of St Bernard of Chiaravalle, who lived in the 11th and 12th centuries.

"We have to guard ourselves, the saint observed, from the dangers of excessive activity, regardless of the office one holds, because too many concerns can often lead to hardness of heart," the pope said.

He doesn't have to tell me twice. (course, I'm not sure what you're supposed to do if you like your job)
