At Work and at Play - Different People?

"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both."

- James A. Michener, "attributed"

I just love that!!!

Many times in my career I have met people who become 'someone else' when they cross the threshold of their place of work ... and they revert back to 'the real me' when they get home!!!

Crazy!! ....why can't we just be the same person all the time? .... different hats for different occasions of course ...but surely not a total personality change??!!!
