Those of us that pride ourselves as ultra-productive will often find it difficult to take a break or take some time off because when I’m not working, I’m not getting stuff done and I don’t like that.
But resting acts as a force-multiplier for the moments when you are working.
We aren’t machines. Our work and effort deteriorate the more we go without our rest.
As the wise man, Ovid once said, “Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”
