All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy...

Last Update: March 31, 2014

Hey guys the subject line says it all yes. We can all get stuck in that phase when working on our blogs or websites, trust me taking a break from it and doing something fun or relaxing your mind can refresh the mind and soul. I call it blogger logging, we all want to get our websites to a point where we are giving people value and getting traffic to our sites.

Don't get into a rhythm where you are just focusing on your business and missing the fun things in life. Maybe you can spend some quality time with your family or do something fun for yourself. I think it's very important to have a good balance between your work and life in general. Personally I do meditation, but I understand that's not for everybody. Having said that, it does put things in perspective though.

So if you need to take a break from your training, website or anything related, take that break because in the long run It's going to be better for you and your business.

Best Wishes

Craig

I took my break this weekend. Stayed away from this from Friday to Monday. Some refreshed since I have over 150 messages to look at.

I'm definitely with you there Chris, took a break done some gardening and slowly answered a lot of questions in between doing tasks.

Nice short & snappy piece here Craig. I think we could all use a gentle reminder from time to time... Or indeed a graphically shocking one - employing help from Jack (playing Jack), a touch of j-enious

I agree with you Craig.. "the best time to let go something is when you need it the most"

You are very right in that you have to find the right balance for yourself. Too much of something will just cause burnout and in this business that is a very bad thing.
