I’ll be officially debuting my book, Get Your Joy™, at Denver Comic Con 2019 (DCC19)! One of the joy builders in the book is called “Take a Break. Or Two. Or Three.” The main idea behind this is twofold:
- If you aren’t enjoying the journey, the destination won’t matter. It’s important to be present and give yourself lots of love, space, and time to rest, recharge, and fuel up before continuing to press forward.
- Science is now backing what we already know: burnout is real and taking breaks is necessary to get the results you want. In fact, people who actually take breaks and vacations get promoted faster and earn more money.
Ultimately, what I’m saying is that taking life too seriously leads to misery. As much as everything matters, it also doesn’t if your quality of life totally sucks! You won’t be effective or joyful, and if you’re neither, what’s the point of working at all?
Let’s take a seriousness break and enjoy my interview on the Reel Nerds podcast from DCC18. We chat about my writing, finding inspiration, fun sci-fi things we like, and other nerdy stuff!
