As you may know, rest and relaxation are not my virtue. I’m still working on it.
My plan of action has always been filled with concrete goals, tasks and deadlines. What’s to say rest is not a requirement for my goals too? Without rest and relaxation, I cannot refuel to continue with the other items. Therefore it is an essential part of my plan of action.
Here are two amazing quotes from individuals we respect for their great achievements:
Leonardo Da Vinci – “Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen. “
His quote adds the element of clarity. Yet another important asset for the completion of our goals…
Ernest Hemingway – “I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best.”
I couldn’t have worded that any better!
