Press pause on whatever project you are working on. Take a break, take a walk, watch TV, read a book.

If you are taking to many breaks, watching too much TV, or reading too much* pause what you are doing and work on your project.

Pressing ‘Pause’ on your current action is the only way that you are going to change to a new activity. A change might be as good as a rest, but if you don’t make a change, you don’t get the rest or the benefit of a new perspective.


*I don’t know if it is possible to read too much.
