I didn't want to get out of bed today.
For the second time this year, I feel burned out.
My body is aching everywhere and I don't feel sharp mentally.
Taking time off hasn't been in my vocabulary this year.
I would've kept pushing through but today I hit a brick wall.
I've done the least I needed to today.
I showed up and did a interview. To be honest, I didn't feel the best about it, but I'm glad I didn't reschedule.
We're all grinding and pushing ourselves constantly.
But at what cost? I think it's important to work hard and build your toughness.
However, we're all human and it's okay to say I need a break.
Instead of pushing myself and digging a deeper hole, I decided to take my foot off the pedal and rest.
That networking event, the pop-dinner, and that catch-up meeting can wait.
Because how can you help others when you can't help yourself?
Take a break before it's too late.
On that note - I will not scheduling any more one-off meetings until after the holidays.
