How Time Off Makes You More Productive

hecticAre you busy? With your job, life, family – in general? Do you spend most days running from here to there and back again? Is it sometimes hard for you to plan time to see a friend? All because you are SO busy?

Everybody is busy, it seems. So busy we don’t do the things we love to do like see our friends, read a book or just lie in the grass and look up at the trees and sky.

Why? Because we are busy.

But -busy doing what?

Could it be that your time management is in need of an overhaul?

Believe it or not, falling prey to the idea that in order to be successful, you must be CRAZY BUSY at all times is not actually true at all.  In a business as exciting and innovative as Start Up and High Tech, you need to rest and rejuvenate yourself regularly.

Even in this competitive world, where people seem to work 24/7 and there are new innovations and millions of events to attend, the number one way to actually BE productive is to make sure you are not just rested but recharged. 

Shabbat really can be a way to get your attention back on your family and the rich life you lead which enables you to return to work on Sunday feeling ready to take on the world again.

Play sports, exercise, read a good book, see a movie, participate in one of the dozens of cultural events available in Israel every weekend. Taking care of YOU will make you more productive in every sense of the word.

Don’t fall for the CRAZY BUSY IS GOOD myth – it’s just not true. Slow down.
