It’s Friday, so Just Relax™

“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”

— Leonardo da Vinci

It’s hard to imagine Leonardo da Vinci, the original renaissance man, taking even a second of time off. How did he accomplish all that, you ask? Not by driving himself to exhaustion, but by using his time wisely. Contrary to what our hyper-speed, hyper-stressed modern world might tell you, success includes a bit of R&R every now and then. Whether that means lunch with friends, taking a jog in the park, or just stepping outside for a breath of fresh air, a little time off will leave you rested, recharged, and raring to go. So learn from the master. Relax.
