#19 – Give Yourself a Break

Literally and figuratively give yourself a proper break when appropriate. Just like the KitKat commercials of the past, “Gimme a break, gimme a break…”.

Literally – Take much needed relaxing vacations. After vacations my clients report feeling, “recharged”, “invigorated” and “more ready to tackle the business challenges ahead”.

Figuratively – When appropriate give yourself a pass on a project, deadline or outcome. Prioritize what’s most important, keep your boss and colleagues informed, and realize that sometimes it’s okay to lighten the load.
