What I learned about leisure time from The Joy of Not Working by Ernie Zelinski

I am terribly surprised that I am just reading this book now. I guess that’s the feeling that people that read a lot get when they encounter a book that surprises and delights them with insights and changes their way of thinking. The Joy of Not Working was originally published in 1991! But even as I read it in 2020, the insights and takeaways from the book apply to life now.
