Feel Guilty: It Helps . . .

I crashed today.

I have been overworking, for sure.

Long days and few days off.

I’m used to 60-80 hour weeks, but it can grind you when it’s physical work or after too many weeks in a row.

I took today off and I’m taking off tomorrow, too.

The trick isn’t just identifying burnout when it’s happening, it’s also giving yourself permission to take the time off.

Wanna make sure you kill your motivation?

Feel guilty.

The trouble is that people like you, who care, are going to feel it no matter what.

The trick isn’t NOT feeling guilty, that’s just going to create problems down the road.

The trick is to feel guilty and THEN notice and regulate.

2 Minute Action:

Take 2 minutes and meditate today.

Take 2 minutes and block off a day on your calendar that’s just for you.

You’re the only one who knows your limits and what you need to perform at your best.
