But instead taking one season of life - with parameters that keep your spouse, family and general responsibilities intact - and giving yourself over to that singular focus in place of movies, gaming, alternate hobbies, side-gigs, distractions, YouTube, TikTok...


What could you accomplish? What sort of joy might you find? What would you learn?


Take a sabbath, for sure.
