@Amie_OT Not letting any one occupation take up too much of my time or dominate too much of my thoughts - I think when you're interested in what you do (as a job or as a hobby) it's tempting to put your whole life into it but that's not good long-term #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
