Never do things others can do and will do, if there are things others cannot do or will not do.

Take a break

With extended focus you create powerful results. But you can’t maintain focus indefinitely.

At some point your focus will begin to lose its effectiveness. That’s when an interruption, whether you choose it or not, is not such a bad thing.

Go ahead and take a break. Give yourself and your thoughts a valuable change of perspective.

Don’t see it as a failure or as an excuse to permanently abandon the work you’ve been doing. Don’t feel guilty or angry or annoyed about it.

Just remind yourself it’s a temporary break. Allow yourself to enjoy the refreshing change.

Then, with renewed energy you can get back to what you were doing. And your focus will be more effective, more creative than ever.
