Last week I was attending a training class on strategic thinking and the topic of work/life balance came up.
I have been working formally on an approach to work/life balance from the professional angle by working on my skills as a leader and a delegator. I have managed to reduce the number of hours I have been working, to reduce stress about stuff I have no control over, and to find some outlets for some of the ideas I want to implement, but haven't been able to for a variety of reasons.
In the training class, it came up that my way of relaxing has so much to do with what I do for work: researching trends in web 2.0, reading my RSS feeds, connecting with people on Facebook and Twitter -- basically geek stuff.
I decided I needed something that would allow my brain to completely disconnect. My half-marathon training has been doing that for me for a while (until my left ankle started acting up). Someone at training suggested I get a Wii.
So, on the way home, I picked one up! I have been lusting after the Wii for a while, and never really could justify getting one. I am so glad I got it! It's so much fun. Now I just need to get some games!
Anyone have any suggestions for must-have Wii titles?
