Know When to Take a Break

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.
