the importance of rest
There has been so much written about the importance of sleep and that includes vacation for ones health. It is also important for ones brain.
I see so many founders never take a breath. Their minds are racing around their businesses. Nothing else comes between them and their business. I get it. There is fear of failure and fear of missing out. The reality is that taking off time, taking a nap, having a solid nights sleep makes all the difference in the world.
Granted we are at a different stage of our lives but after taking off last week (although we are never fully off) we have both come back with a whole new attitude. New ideas, better frame of mind and a serious attitude adjustment.
I definitely wake up with the carpe diem attitude every day but when I sleep or rest or take time off it is amazing how much more gets done.
