Diminishing Returns

It sucks when you’re not feeling well. It’s probably one of the most frustrating emotional states. It’s even worse when you try to push through, only to exacerbate the problem.

It’s been one of those weeks for me. I’ve tried to take care of myself by eating the right things, drinking lots of fluid, and everything else your mom tells you growing up. I haven’t been sleeping well, nor have I given my mind a break. This is only increasing my stress and decreasing my productivity. My returns have diminished and now I’m paying for it.

I guess sometimes you need to just cut your losses and rejuvenate yourself.

It’s okay occasionally to let the world know you need some time off for ‘personal reasons’. I’m know a lot of you are grinding, always working, finding something to do, never finding time for a break, and honestly, you probably don’t even want a break because you love what you do.

Likewise. I love the process.

But right now, I would be hurting myself further and putting those around me in at risk. At the very least, killing their buzz.

As Bryant McGill, the human potential thought leader, once said, “Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So, relax.”

Signing off until next week.
