Start-up entrepreneurs have a habit of working up to 18 hours a day. This ambitious rhythm gives them little time for rest. Even when surrounded by other talented people, they often feel guilty about taking breaks. Nevertheless, these entrepreneurs should be reminded that to perform well and be an inspiring leader you have to be rested.
- The brain needs a break
Entrepreneurs work a lot, add up hours developing strategies, ensuring their perfect execution, adjust their communication as well as imagine impressive tactics. All this can lead to burnouts. For you to function well, your mind has to be rested. Attention and motivation, which come with rest, boosts creativity and productivity.
Consider that taking a break will enable you to get back to work with a clear mind and resolve issues more easily.
- When the cat is out, mice gain
Even though your team needs a leader to be challenged and motivated, sometimes it is important to also step back and let your team naturally loosen up.
If you are a boss and going on holiday it might be the perfect occasion to encourage people to get proactive, develop themselves or delegate certain tasks. This period will enable your team to bind through challenges.
- A leader has to set the tone
Employees often imitate their boss’ attitude, which is why you must show the right example by taking care of yourself.
Holidays are perfect to recharge your batteries and mind, discover new hobbies and maybe even rediscover old passions. Your health is important, and you will find out how much you needed that break when you set foot back into the office after a holiday.
