Why You Should Take Time Off Work

Awhile back things got stressful with my work, which happens to everyone. However, not everyone runs their own company and needs to give a speech in two weeks. Some stress that I’ll wrap up to business politics on top of everything else made me decide to take a week off work. That may sound like a bad idea for the CEO of a company to take a week off, but I put all my ducks in a row. I had completed all work I was supposed to complete and the rest was being handled by someone else.

I decided to check my emails once or twice a day, but on the most part I didn’t touch any technology, excluding my playstation. I did write my speech on my break and take care of some small things, but for all intensive purposes I was unavailable.

Once I got back to doing work, well, it didn’t feel like work at all. I don’t do information security because it feels like work, I do it because I love it and am not a 9-5 guy. You can find me working late into the night and in the middle of the day, but it doesn’t usually feel like work. The time I took off taught me not to check my emails like crazy, because i mainly read new spam. I focus my energy where it is needed and then do other things. What’s really awesome is an amazing opportunity came available the first week I got back in the game and I worked on it like crazy. I am trying to take small breaks and encourage everyone to give theirself a breather from work, even if you don’t consider it to be work. Trust me, you’ll come back swinging home runs.
