If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Increased productivity through rest
Resting on park bench
I heard an entrepreneur on Minnesota Public Radio share how he often has long work days, but he always takes Sunday off, as a time to recuperate and share with his family. Paradoxically he finds this is also his most productive work time. Earlier in the week he may find a seemingly insurmountable problem, but then when he's at rest, the solution will come to him.
This is a great reminder for us all to take time to rest and unplug from the business of our daily lives, especially when we're under the most pressure.
