How to make time for a life, or Click mini-review

Make time for your friends and family because you never know what may happen next.

If you think this is a review of the movie Click, you may be right, but for some of you part-time or full-time entrepreneur's, this movie may be a serious wake-up call.

Everyone has always said, "Gosh, I wish I had a remote control and rewind that part of my life and do things differently." The movie does just that, but it just takes you back to when the event happened. You can't interact with anything or anybody.

Anyways, the movie is half-funny, half-drama, which most of us have expected from Adam Sandler's career lately. For 45 minutes, the movie is hilarious. The remaining 45 minutes is drama related. The latter is for the entrepreneurs in the crowd.

My take on the film is two fold:

  • Certain tasks you dislike in life, personal and/or business, may be somewhat important and have to be completed (finish a proposal, etc.), like it or not. You can't fast-forward through them, you have to deal with them in one way or another.
  • Make sure you don't get so caught up in your work where you don't have time for anyone else in your life, but your next promotion or next project.

The issue regarding this movie is that you do have a life outside of work, and you need to break away from it sometime. If you don't, it will eat you alive.

Make sure you organize and plan your time with the ones you love in your life. You never know what lurks around the next corner. Oh, and make sure you exercise (again, watch the movie). :-)
