Its really easy when you’re excited about your goals to forget to build some down-time into your plan. In fact a lot of people feel guilty about taking any time off at all and if they could they would work 24/7 and find a way to clone themselves as well.
But think about it this way: Imagine you had someone working for you who was brilliant, switched on, motivated, intelligent, knowledgeable, dynamic, forward thinking, creative, was totally committed to you and passionate about what they were doing and you absolutely loved working with this person.
Now imagine that you never paid them, you never praised them, you never rewarded them in any way, you never listened when they told you what they needed, you always put them last in any decisions you made, you didn’t care about their health or their stress levels, you never paid any attention to what they wanted and you expected them to show up 100% all day every day.
How long would you expect that person to hang around working for you?
