Quote: “Begin with the end in mind.” – Stephen Covey
Always take time to care for you. Having goals and being focused on getting paid more is great, but if you have bad health, it won’t mean much. Besides in order to get ahead and stay there you need to have good mental, emotional and physical energy.
In order to get that good energy, you have to have proper rest, proper exercise and eat properly. It’s not always easy. But it can and should be done. I personally love to get outside and walk on my lunch breaks. There is just something that happens when the rays of the sun hit my skin. I feel refreshed and renewed. When I get back to the office I am ready to tackle the next task. Find whatever it is you like and do it.
Another thing I like to do is sleep. I call it one of my favorite hobbies. I suggest you get the proper shut eye you need in order to work at your maximum potential. When you get proper sleep, you will awaken energized and ready for the day. When you are able to think well, your performance will soar. When your performance soars, other people will take notice. So be sure to take care of you, because if you don’t give to yourself then you won’t be able to give to others because you won’t have the energy.
