3B -June 20, 1976 Sunday Gasette-Mail -- Charleston, Weit Virginia ByTomFesperman 1 knew, if the campaign went on long enough, somebody would slip and say something wise. Jerry Brown, who may be a candidate before his time, said it." We used to have meditation in the seminary called 'present moment,'" he said. "The nuns would tell us to keep writing in our notebooks until the bell rang--and then stop. "Just slop where you are and go out and play. "And then when the next bell rings, just come back and go to work again." THEN JERRY SAID what no politicians, and too few business executives, have ever said: "I take some time off. I spend time alone. I like to spend time alone. "A lot of people never take the time to be by themselves. "From what I've seen of people in public life, they're 'on' Otherwise Fesperman Workaholic Addiction Connected to Childhood all the time." Some of my best friends are like that.cThey're workaholics. They're always 'on,' though they're really 'way off.' They know a lot, but they don't know themselves. "Workaholics are people so addicted to work that they don't know when to stop. They think the old home planet will go into the wrong orbit if thev hit the beach. IT'S HARD to get dumber than that. It started in childhood, when each of us tried to climb highest in the old oak tree. That was the beginning of the notion that, if you're going to the top. you'vegot toshinny the longest. This boyhood notion was misinterpreted by big politicians and executives, who think you prove your manhood by being first in the office and the last to leave. And shuffle papers on airships between conferences. And meander through meaningless memos during "Maude." I'm a cured workaholic. But I've meditated, Jerry-bov. and reviewed the old addiction. If I ever had any bright ideas, they came in the first few working hours. After that, it was shuffling. We could use more ideas in the morning, and less shuffling in the evening. Whoever wins in November ought to be made to stick to a 40-hour week, maybe even 35. I could carry on much longer on this theme, but I'm not. I'm going to hit the beach.
