In the thick of the world, and the work I’m building up to this year, there’s a tendency to want to hustle all the time. But I like DHH’s advice there, to take some time out, rest, and enjoy life.

Being mostly self-employed, it’s a tricky feat, since I want to make sure I’m able to make ends meet, while also still doing the best work and providing the best care and services I can.

Today, I took time with family, cooking for the week ahead, watching some Olympics, and generally resting. I’m behind on some work I need to get done, but the rest day felt right and I plan to schedule some time during the week to play catch-up.
