In a flash nine (9) months have come and gone this year.
Yes, it’s October already.
While some spent these months working on different tasks – from studying to building businesses, writing books and a host of other things, others are totally unaware of how much time has gone this year and haven’t done anything meaningful.
From the very first week of the year I’d been publishing each week on this blog (except for the months of June and July when I fell ill), to cap it all, during the month of September, I wrote and published one blog post each day.
Although that exercise was truly rewarding as I’ve witnessed significant improvement in my writing, made a lot of friends and had some real fun, I’ve decided to take a break.
No, not from writing every day (I can’t survive that), but from publishing daily.
So I would place myself on the list of those who have done meaningful work.
However, it is sad to know that it is yet to dawn on some people that the year has been far spent and there’s less than a quarter to go.
The Truth remains: the year is far spent and as always time spent remains irrevocable. It’s gone. Forever!
Well, today instead of giving you tips on how to get more things done, I’d advice you to Take a break!
Break the routines – go grab some air. Reward yourself with a break.
I know you’re thinking: “there’s still more to do. More plans to actualise, more goals to hit and more targets to reach. Why take a break?”
It is even obvious that some work in progress don’t want to end this year and the task list just keeps growing.
Yes, this may sound counter intuitive.
As it is obvious that some of your work in progresses don’t want to end this year and the task list just keeps growing.
That’s the problem.
There will always be more to do. Endlessly!
Which is why it is best for you to take a break now and reap the rewards it comes with.
Taking a break helps you:
1. See how far you’ve come
2. Evaluate your approach
3. Get refreshed and revitalised
4. Develop a sense of gratitude
5. Get focused on the task at hand.
When you reward yourself with a break, you come back with greater strength better focus and thus increase your ability to do more.
Go. Take a break today just don’t forget to get back to work on time.
