Hard work is important.
It’s the foundation of, well, everything.
Without hard work, you don’t have a company, you don’t have a business, you probably don’t have much at all.
However, you can’t just have hard work.
If you never relax, never step back, you won’t see the results you want.
That’s true in business as well as in life.
Writing this on Christmas Eve, Danny Star and the team encourage you to take some time off for the holidays. No matter what holidays you observe, really observe them. They’re special. They don’t come around often, and they certainly aren’t guaranteed. That’s been proven, unfortunately, through 2020.
Studies About the Importance of Taking Time Off
In writing this blog, the Danny Star team went through a bunch of studies. Each of them extolled the virtues of taking time off from work, of giving yourself breaks.
Then, we realized, we really don’t have to link these.
You know that you should take time off.
Whether you’ve seen it through your employees or through your own work, the truth is that work of any kind suffers if you don’t take breaks.
That’s true whether you’re working 80 hours a week. It’s also true if you work for hours and hours throughout the day without taking breaks.
Working hard is so important, and valued so much in our culture, that it can feel like you’re harming the company to take a break.
However, the opposite is true.
If you don’t rest, if you don’t step away, then eventually, your work will suffer.
Perhaps not today, and maybe even not tomorrow, but inevitably.
When it does, you’ll find that not only is the work poor, but you feel awful because you didn’t take that time to rest.
