It's time to add up all the ways in which working ridiculous hours hurts you and the people around you--and put a stop to the madness.
Silent the voice telling you to do more and be more, and trust that in this moment, what you are doing, who you are, where you are at is enough. You will get to where you want to be in your own time. Until then, breathe. Best success quotes are the reason for being patient and breathe with yourself and your process. You are doing the best you can to survive and cope amid your struggles, and that’s all you can ask of yourself. It’s enough. You are enough.
That's some nice reasons to stop working ridiculous hours.
Quantity kills quality. You want to be intelligent and excellent at what you do. But the more assignments you take on, the smaller your possibility of doing an excellent job at any of them. Cut out as much work from your task list as you can ups the odds that you'll do a killer job on the things that matter most.
Your mood is a buzzkill. The kind of impatience and irritability that goes with behind schedule and being overworked will cast a black cloud over the persons around you both at home and at the workplace. Being an employee, it will destroy your career. While If you're a little business owner, it will damage your business.
You're setting a bad example. The work tone and schedule you set for yourself will likely be mirrored by the most ambitious and smartest of your employees. What kind of bosses and leaders do you want them to be? Do you want the benefit of their best judgment and brightest ideas? Then don't design an environment where everyone vies to see how much time they can work without falling over.
There will always be more work. If you run your own business, there's always a new technology to try out, a new project to start, or a new customer to pursue. You'll never be out of new work to do. And if you work for someone else, getting a lot done will lead to being given more assignments. That can be the best part, but only if you have the energy and time to do the work with excellence.
You're hurting your relationships. Somewhere along the way your family and buddies sat you down and insisted that you take some time to talk with them every day as somewhere you are blessed not only with a good marriage but an unusually nice buds and with family hierarchy. There may be persons in your life feeling as shut out as they were who haven't come out and said so. Don't wait until it's too late.
You're screwing up your health. Did anyone know anyone was risking their life by working so hard? I'm sure you're smart enough not to work 35 hours straight, but do you let your work schedule interfere with things like regular exercise and healthy eating, not to mention sleep? If so, then it's more feasible you're shortening your life chain by overwork. Is it worth it?
