The past two days, I’ve been slacking in my mind (but for good reason). I got back from 12 days straight of working my 8-5 and blogging every week day and my mind was exhausted. Now, I couldn’t take two days off from my job but you know what I could take a break from? This blog. So I did. My mind can only go so hard before shutting down. And the same is true for yours. Give your all when you can but know that, eventually, your all has been depleted and it is at that moment that you need to reprioritize your efforts and re-energize.
In short, always make sure you take some time to recharge. You might work hard six days a week but, on that seventh, take time to enjoy the sun and smile.
Make professional development a priority.
