Do you work 24/7/365 without taking a break?
That can make you boring but that’s not all! All work and no play dangers growth. You can work your butt off but never seem to get ahead.
Why is that?
Having no fun in your daily routines means that you aren’t able to develop your strengths in a different way. You will turn into a robot.
You won’t be able to think creatively to stray off the path.
You won’t be able to determine your weaknesses and work to make them stronger.
You will be in a sense monotone.
Is that a life worth living?
Probably not but you often do have a choice! Decide wisely and often. You may never know when you are making a choice that further strengthens your self. Strengthens your performance.
Despite what others may say I have worked hard on the trike and gym bike. I have a time trial the next two weekends so I have been doing a lot. A lot of Sprint works, a lot of hill work, and an insane amount of endurance work. My legs need to rest now for the time trials. My goal is to do 20K in 45 minutes or less! I am going to need all the rest I can get.
No one every said life was easy. We aren’t made to operate 24/7/365.
We need breaks to recharge
We need breaks to be more creative.
We need breaks to perform better.
We need breaks to be full of life.
We need breaks to be human!
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!
