Why you should take breaks and work like a tree

I’m working on a project right now that I *really* want to grow and be successful, so I feel like I should be working hard on it all the time.

But sometimes I want to rest.

Or take a break.

But then I think, “In order to succeed I need to work harder and longer,” and I keep going.

Good idea, right?

Nope. Not according to these articles (bold added):

So, I’m going to start working like a tree. Did you know that trees don’t grow throughout the year?

They have periods of growth and periods of rest.

And look how awesome they turn out!

If you’re pushing yourself harder and harder to achieve your big vision for your work in the world, stop. Take a lesson from a tree.

Grow a little and rest.

Grow a little and rest.

Grow a little and rest.
