Maybe it’s just because vacations are few and far between – but I feel like work is like a pet goldfish (or a python on the loose in Florida), it simply grows to fit its surroundings. So, every time you give it a bigger habitat, it grows. My work is a bunny and it’s going to just keep making more work until I go all Bob Barker on it (kids, ask your parents).
So, I’ve got to learn to keep it in check. My workload already consumes 99% of my mental activity and a huge chunk of my time, both in and out of the office. I have created this wild ravinous beast, I am going to get it undercontrol.
For example, mandatory Happy Hours.
Good starting place right? I thought so.
And on to the cocktail.

Muddle the mint in the bottom of your glass and fill with ice.
Pour the rum and pineapple juice into the glass and top off with the coconut water.
Give a quick stir and enjoy responsibly.
This week I was out to dinner at a local restaurant and had a refreshing cocktail that combined coconuts with a timeless mojito. I came home and made it my mission to recreate it.
