“Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”Ralph Marston
I’m at the beach this week with the family, for some much needed R & R. I’ve been overworked and stressed the H.G. Loving Wells out the past couple months. Money, health, friendships, calling, all swirling into bickering problems. Which usually leads me working more than I should.
I also secretly love working. Especially when I’m working on my own ideas (like this blog for example). But always working doesn’t equate to feeling refreshed and the most clear headed in wise decision making. It’s usually when I’m overworked when I’m the most grumpy.
Working more has diminishing returns. The more you work, the less quality you get
Hard work is incredibly important. But working from both ends of the candle is not going to do you any favors.
No matter how small, we need downtime to feel our best.
I’m itching to work on something right now, but I’m not. I’m going to get as much rest and renewal out of this vacation as I possible can.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
