After all is said and done at the end of a work week we face the most difficult tasks of our existence: to pause and to rest.
What is it about rest that trips us up and renders us feeling unproductive?
Many of us spend our lunch breaks and nights pondering and ruminating … work.
When DO you rest my friend AND when was the last time you left your work to simply be?
Leaving behind the seriousness of your art, your company or your clientele for a few days rest is imperative if we are to really excel in everything that we do.
To constantly chase the carrot of believing that you have to always get it ALL done is the lie that robs you of true rest and peace; taking a second glance after much needed rest can often yield the best results.
So take a break this weekend and enjoy the cadence of silence and if anyone asks who gave you permission, just send them to me.

As we search for charismatic leaders and heroes to “show us the way,” numerous opportunities are being missed; the opportunity to hone your voice, the opportunity to expand your skill-set and most importantly the opportunity to reach out and touch the lives of others.
It’s time to get up from the table, to dig your head out of the pot of knowledge, to step back, look up, digest, and give away what you have acquired; there will be plenty of time for seconds and thirds later.
