What's a break?

A break is defined as a pause in time. A time-out (these are my own definitions, not Google's), a day off. A break is not doing work. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?! Does that mean I DON'T post a pic Instagram every two hours? No location scouting? Not even Pinterest board creating for that next project I just picked up?!!? No, no. No, that's not going to work. The man in the mirror will say, you will not only work today, you won't be able to HELP working today and you won't even know if you like it or not, because it's just what you're going to do. That followed by... you will have to shower at some point. 

What is hustling if not for a few sleepless nights and drag-out days? It's a part of the Game of Life. We are supposed to do it in the corporate world... when that e-mail comes through at 9AM on your (ahem) day off, and you must answer it because, let's face it, your boss knows you're off so she must be sending it for a reason and you don't want to get that look when you walk through the door the next day. That, however, should NOT be the reason you are working on your day off. You should WANT to get back to that client, who you are passionately working with on a project. Or that patient who you are doing groundbreaking work for.  My thing is, if you want to work, that's not a bad thing. I know, yes, taking a break is a requirement of life to keep it all going. But there's nothing like having another gratifying day of working towards or for your dream. I'm being my own boss, so that when I break... I can break like Beyonce and Rihanna and go to the farthest island on the globe for 7 weeks at a time.
