So you are thinking about taking the day off. You woke up and felt like this should be a day without work of any kind pressing in. A day to rest, kick back, relax, enjoy your morning coffee leisurely. Listen to the birds. Read. Go for a walk. Nap. Putter.
Well, then do it. But to get the most from it, there must be no guilt. For if you do, you waste. At the end of the day, you will have neither worked nor rested. With neither a sense of accomplishment or refreshment at the end of the day, now that would be a sad way to end it!
Do you remember Yoda from Star Wars? The scene where he chides Luke Skywalker for his anemic response to Yoda's direction:
Luke: Okay, I'll give it a try.Yoda: NO! Do ... or do not. There is no try.
Back to what we were chatting about: Go have a day off. It's okay. Do without guilt, regret or shame. And come back refreshed, rejuvenated, and relaxed. If you need permission, here, you have my permission...
Now go enjoy it!
