I think taking a break from things is a very healthy thing to do from time to time . It’s all too easy to get caught up in the day to day – work, routine and commitments – and loose touch with what’s important, enjoyable and right.
A short break let’s you get perspective back, takes off the pressure, and helps keep you fresh.
As the late Steven Covey pointed out: it’s all too easy to confuse URGENT with IMPORTANT.
Many of the things we do because they’re urgent, not because they’re important . . . taking a break can help with sorting out which is which.
Join me – take a short break from doing something, and afterwards you’ll come back to it refreshed and revitalised. Alternatively you might decide it’s not that important after all, and decide to ditch it. Either way is good !
I’ll be back in a week (refreshed and revitalised) – untill then, quotes:
“Once in a while you have to take a break and visit yourself” – AUDREY GIORGI
“You should never take life so seriously that you forget to play” - ANON
“There is more to life than increasing it’s speed” – MAHATMA GANDHI
“It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is what are we busy about ?” - HENRY DAVID THOREAU
“If you’re too busy to help those around you succeed, you’re too busy” - ANON
