From @AdamMGrant. In toxic culture, time off is a reward earned by working to exhaustion. Burnout is proof of commitment, and vacations are required to recover. In healthy culture, time off is a right granted to everyone. Well-being is a top priority, and vacations are encouraged to rejuvenate.
From Yung Pueblo. A leap forward sometimes requires a cocooning period where you decrease the amount of interactions you have with other people and are less focused with your daily work. Moving slowly and turning your attention inward prepares you emotionally and energitically for the next level.
Don’t compare your behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel. It’s easier to admire resilience in others than to recognize it in ourselves. We often underestimate ourselves because we see other people’s outer strength but not their inner struggles. WE all have doubts. Questioning your resolve doesn’t make you weak. It makes you human.
