Extraordinary successful people start their year by taking time out to plan for their time off.
They know they will need it and they know they will be able to afford it.
They work hard and play hard.
Most successful entrepreneurs simply see themselves as working between vacations.
Take time off.
Block out long weekends and long vacations, then take them.
You will be rested, more relaxed, and more productive afterward.
Everything needs rest to function better, and you are no different.
There are a few examples of successful people who violate this, but they are not our role models.
They succeed in spite of how they rest and renew, not because of it.
Our biology did not evolve to sit at a desk typing all day.
Taking regular breaks is not only good for your body, but is also crucial for peak creativity.
It does good also to take walks out of doors, that our spirits may be raised and refreshed by the open air and fresh breeze.
Sometime the most urgent and vital thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest.
Checking social media is not taking a break. You are just wasting time and eroding your ability to focus even further, not to mention teetering on the brink of the vacuous wormhole that is most of the internet.
