The Overindulged
By: Rick Boxx

Many try to build the case that what’s done on their personal time shouldn’t matter to their employer. If you’ve ever managed a team who likes partying on their time-off, you likely have seen the negative effects a night of food and heavy drinking has on job performance the next day.

In my wayward 20s, I traveled throughout the State of Georgia doing audits with young staffers who loved partying. Many audits that summer, including mine, suffered the consequences of stuffed, hung over auditors.

Proverbs 23:20 teaches, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.”

If you’re hiring a team of people, be wary of those who overindulge on their time off.
