Manuel Goldring pursues passions outside the office "I’ve learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.'" This quote from poet and activist Maya Angelou isn't the only one out there about finding happiness outside of a career.
There are countless adages and proverbs touting the importance of a healthy work-life balance. A job is just a job. Work to live, but don't live to work. And the list goes on. Yet, for Manuel Goldring, it's more than just cliches. It goes beyond motivational quotes printed onto a poster. For him, it's a philosophy to embrace. It's a way of life. After leaving a career in accounting behind, the New Jersey resident now fills his days pursuing only things that bring him joy. For Manuel Goldring, that's his family, his hobbies, and his love for technology.
Manuel Goldring will continue to put in the work. But, it won't be simply for a paycheck. He won't be chasing the next promotion. He will grind only for self-gratification. Family, health, and his passions will always take precedent. Above all else, happiness is the most important full-time job.
Manuel Goldring spends time exploring digital realms as well. Video games are his outlet, helping him to relax and decompress after a long day. Ever since he was young, he has enjoyed playing video games. He gravitated to sports and racing games, like Madden and Forza, as a child because he was an avid fan in real life. He mostly played these with his brother.
