The Rest

The best jazz soloists know how to utilize the power of space. The notes they play are enhanced by the space that surrounds them.

In the same way, I believe it's important to take time to rest in the rhythm of work. Here are some ways I try to incorporate rest into a busy work schedule:

Daily - take time to read or take a walk outside
Weekly - set aside one day to
Monthly - take one weekend to get out of town
Yearly - step away from creating for at least two consecutive weeks twice a year

With consistent rest comes a renewed enjoyment of creating.

Keep writing (and resting),
