It Is Important To Escape the Daily Grind…
Have you ever watched someone run at 10,000 rpms and think to yourself, “they are not going to last long at that pace!”? I’ve been that person and I’m sure many of you have as well. As I’ve grown older and become the old bull I chuckle when I see the young bull running himself or herself ragged trying to hustle and get ahead. Sometimes you have to take some time away from the daily grind and recharge the batteries.
The simple fact is we cannot operate at maximum effort every moment of every day or else we will burn out. There have been years when I sacrificed time off, but now I take every day my company gives me: every sick day, every personal day, every vacation day.
My time off is as valuable to me finding success as my days on are valuable. It doesn’t mean you are lazy because you take time for yourself. Conversely, it doesn’t mean you are more dedicated if you sacrifice your time off in exchange for working.
Take a break occasionally. Hope you have a great Wednesday.
