Getting Tired

Years ago I worked on a landscaping project with my Grandfather and he taught me this, I thought I'd share it here.

At 15 you can work all day and not get tired.

At 25 when you get tired you can work through it.

At 35 when you get tired you take a break and recover and go back at it.

At 45 when you get tired you take a nap and then go back at it half speed.

At 55 when you get tired you're done for the day.

At 65 you're tired all the time.

At 75 you're glad to be tired because you're still around.

It's been true so far, my Grandfather was a wise man.

    I'm halfway between back at it at half speed, and, done for the day. Actually, I'm closer to done for the day.

      At 45 we ought to be getting others to do it for us while we *supervise.

      * By "supervise" I of course mean "nap."
