~ BUSINESS BEFORE PLEASURE ~

Have you ever heard of that phrase? “Business before pleasure.” It means you should get your work done before you ‘play’ or ‘go out to play’.

Looking at these and other photos I took today, gives you the impression that I was doing things the wrong way round ~ but no ~ that is definitely not the case! Read on ...

We were actually at a special Shrine in Asakusa that is related to ‘business’ - preparing for a business trip to India is the reason why we went there. Then after the ‘work’ was done, we decided to visit the famous Shrine in Asakusa, as you can see. However, it was definitely “business before pleasure”, so we were safe.

Here is a great phrase to learn and use:

Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.

~ Henry Ward Beecher ~
