How One Day Off Makes Us Better Business People
Is it possible to get more work done in six days than in seven days?
When we love what we do for work, it can be challenging to turn it off.
It can be challenging to let go of the reigns.
It’s so much fun to be in the hunt of making a difference.
Then there is the pull that if we are not available for our clients, then they will miss out.
We work hard, and we work smart and we succeed.
That success propels us to want to achieve more success.
Yet if we run too fast for too long, we break down.
As much as we need to work, we need to rest.
I propose that we can get more accomplished in six days of work than we can in seven days of work.
We need a day off each week to rest.
We need a day off each week to unplug from the constant demands of our work.
When we work too much, we dull our senses.
When we work too much, we get caught in the weeds.
Getting caught in the weeds leads to focusing on the less essential things in our lives.
We lose sight of the bigger picture.
We lose sight of what’s important.
We get busy, being busy, and doing unimportant work.
Let’s look at things differently.
Is it possible to get more work done in 16 hours than in 24 hours?
What happens if we work for 24 hours straight?
We start to make costly mistakes.
We need to rest our bodies and minds once a day.
We need to rest our bodies and minds once a week.
We need to rest our bodies and minds once a month.
We need to rest our bodies and minds once a year.
Resting allows us to gain perspective.
We make better decisions when we are adequately rested.
The decisions we make ultimately determine if we will succeed or fail.
We owe it to ourselves to take breaks so that we can make better decisions.
We live more abundantly when we make better decisions.
