Under the Radar: Rest and Recovery

Interesting thoughts, reproduced from memory, not quotes.

Rest for me is focusing on other parts of life that I care about: family, travel, and health.

Work feels like it has higher immediate consequences, which is why it gets more attention.

Burnout is not a state, an indicator on the "dashboard". It's a slope: if the slope goes downwards, you're in a bad place.

The reality of rest is you don't know how much you needed it until you take it.

I have to force myself to rest because, otherwise, I'm ultimately unable to deliver my best work.

We're burning ourselves out doing things that we realistically don't even need to be doing.
