Everybody wants to trick time and somehow accomplish 28 hours worth of things in a 24-hour day. You want to move ahead in your career, you want to keep your romantic relationship not just afloat but happy, and you wouldn’t mind having some semblance of a social life, but it’s very hard to do a good job at all of these things, no matter who you are. You may think the way to get ahead is to never pause, and never take a break. If you sleep less than everyone else, then you will win, right? But, many of the people you consider very successful in love, their careers, and family life, could tell you that their secret is occasionally taking a break from it all. It’s not only helpful to do; it is essential. If you burn out, you just won’t be effective at anything, no matter how much time you dedicate to it. Here are signs you desperately need a personal day.
You think everyone is incompetent
Typically when people ask for your help, you can see where they’re coming from. You can understand why they may need assistance. You understand everyone needs help sometimes. But lately, when someone asks for your help, all you can think of is how incompetent they are and that they should be able to do it on their own.
