You’ve chosen


It’s time, right now, to take a break. To put down the email and the spreadsheet and the pitch deck and the spec sheet, to close your eyes a moment, rub them a little, and relax back into your chair. To wiggle your toes and smile. To roll your neck once, twice, and take remember that time you were reading by the pool and were interrupted by children laughing.

It’s time, right now, to get some perspective. To remember that these are the problems you have chosen to solve, the people you’ve chosen to work beside, the place you’ve chosen to spend your time. To look around, to notice, to appreciate.

It doesn’t matter whether the work is hard today or easy, whether it’s your passion or an assignment.

It’s time, right now, to focus and get on with it.

Skippy strategy: Take a moment, then get on with it.
