When Things Get A Bit Too Much…

'surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard' - Colin Powell 

My personality has created me into a person who is is extremely dedicated in whatever I do, to the point that I work myself too hard. A lot of my friends and family are always encouraging me to take breaks, but if I don't have a piece of work done or I haven't done something, I will think about it so much until I have. I find it so extremely hard to just switch off and take some time out, I feel so guilty that when I have a break I should be using that time to do work. I guess there is a point of working hard and working too hard, and I've only just realised it now. I'm so passionate at what I do, and when I really care about something, I get stressed. I want to do well, I want to succeed but working yourself too hard will actually make you worse off. Your concentration will go, you won't actually do any proper work, because all you'll be thinking about is how much stress you are putting yourself under. Taking time out is actually very important and I have definitely learnt that this week, work hard but play hard too...
