“When you get tired learn to rest, not quit.”

—Banksy, an anonymous England-based street artist & political activist

How tired are you at this very moment? How tired have you felt physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually this past year? Besides your overall levels of energy, how would you rate your health, mood, ambition, motivation, and productivity?

These days, few of us are at our best. Some of us may be at one of our lowest points ever, with many having quit due to exhaustion and burnout.

Banksy’s coaching at such times is to rest, to take better care of ourselves, and to help others do the same.

We all may also wish to lower our expectations of ourselves and others, embrace our humanity, and know that our best can differ from time to time.

EXERCISE:

Where would more sleep, a few more naps, and more “you time” for rest and recharge keep you moving forward even if it is at a more moderate pace?

  1. This is the best advice. I have often been coached it’s important to take regular breaks / vacations to recharge your batteries and clear your mind. If you continue to grind on and on without intermittent rest, you risk burning out and I have been there enough times to finally understand the importance of this. Thanks Barry!
