The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

 Sydney Harris


It is when we are the busiest that we should take time to rest.

It seems like a waste of time at first, but when we rest, we come back stronger, more creative and more resilient.

When we alternate intense activity with period of rest, the pause in between gives us an opportunity to evaluate if what we are doing still makes sense.

This concept applies to intellectual activities as well as physical activities.

The best time to relax is before you need to relax.

The best time to rest is before you need to rest.

“No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may become the step that will lead us to better things.”

Channing Pollock


I don’t feel like doing this job, it’s too boring…

I have too much skills or experience to lower myself on this task…

Why don t you ask so and so to work on this thing…

If we want to know how someone will handle larger tasks and responsibilities, we observe how the same person handles small and less important jobs. If the person has a tendency to cut corners and complain most of the time about what they have to do, why would we want to give them better and bigger responsibilities?

Doing what we don’t feel like doing ASAP is a good way to save time and to reduce the stress in our lives.

Just Do It !
