Taking A Needed Break?
 
 

Welcome back from the Hari Raya Holidays. I recently came back from a much needed break as I have been working round the clock trying to move things at a speed of light. The biggest challenge I have is that most people do not function that way and always seems to have “reasons” why they do not know about something that needs to be done that fast or to be completed. Now that's disappointing. But I have also learnt that sometime, I just need to slow down at certain times to take a much needed break to allow others to catch up. So the next time you take a break and before you take that break, seriously do ask yourself if you really do need that break or is it really a great time for you to catch up with all the back log and delayed work that is holding others back.

I have a to do list which i give priority to urgent task that needs to be completed. When I take a break its when I know i am not holding anyone back from completing their task... i rest better that way!

Noted and truly agreed Boss. Taking a short break could be a little energizer and rejuvenate. But too much break tends to make one lazy and unproductive.
Really salute you for moving things fast and definitely a lot to learn from you.

thanks and regards

Take a break to boost our productivity and de-stress. And come back to be more passionate about our work. :)

At some point, people don't realize how things need to be done fast, accurate and right. However, i believe to the fact where people also seems don't realize their potential to do things as the speed of light as what you already did. For that, I'm saluting you! Not all people in this world manage to do that. for me, I'm still in the process of learning and giving out my best. Hope it will give some benefits to the other colleague, company, students and my life as well in the future. For that, kudos to you boss!

We will never know our potential unless we push ourself to the max. Reflect to "if you think you work hard, work harder"... I do agree.

Always enjoy with the work that we're doing, so that no such thing as delay will occur because it will burden our-self too.

Dear Ernie, I do agreed with you and I have to admit that I sometimes have been slacking especially after a long break. However I've learnt my lesson and will keep in my that we must not take things for granted.

I felt like I needed to take a break to keep my attention? And, I often fought the urge thinking that I needed to concentrate harder only to end up losing my focus? I think someone trying to suggest that I should have listened to my inner self and taken a break.
Scientist say the new findings overturn traditional theory about the nature of attention and demonstrates that even brief diversions from a task can dramatically improve one’s ability to focus on that task for prolonged periods. Thank you to my understanding boss.

After taking the break, it is time to work harder and smarter.

I agree that taking a needed break for ourself for release stress and to see around the world. However, before taking any leave, the work have to be done must get it done before go for vacation.

Thank you boss for your advice, I’ll improve myself to work more efficiently. I realize an efficient worker need to use the most of his/her time and give full of attention to complete the task.

Ya indeed we should take break when we really need it.. That Raya was enough to catch up the delayed work and everything is back on track..

Noted Boss..
No more excuses after a long holiday because TIME is more valuable and I knew that DELAYS have dangerous ends.
