Taking the day off

We are a small team. Ahead significantly of forecasts.


I just told everyone to put out of office emails till Monday.


Stay well. Sometimes we all need a break.


Anyone catch the "Languishing" article on NYT? I suggest it.

Thanks for sharing that article. I had no idea what it was called, but languishing spot-on described what I've been experiencing. It's not like I have crippling depression, but everything is meh. I was just telling my wife that there is nothing to look forward to at my job anymore. No travel, no seeing my colleagues once per quarter, nothing fun. I've been making an effort to spend time with friends lately, and that's been a bit helpful. It's just purely been a grind since COVID started. I'm still getting business in, but closing a deal just leads to the question of "when is the next one coming in?"ย 

I don't think the problem is specific to my job. I think I'd feel this way with pretty much any job that pays well.

It's really interesting that the author talks about flow as a solution. I've always been interested in flow and finding more ways to have it in my life. But the author lost me a bit when they mentioned watching Netflix as a possible source of flow... I don't think that's right haha.

Sounds like I need to get outdoors this weekend and do some fly fishing!

Big fly fish energy here. Thanks for taking the time to read it. Once it clicked with me, I was like. Yep. That's the word.ย 

Everyone's flow is different. Some people are present in the moment. So people value escapism.ย 

Very thoughtful answer.ย 

Stay well.

Same to you! I certainly think escapism can be helpful, but I've always felt that flow is active. Maybe I need to do some more research!

I really need to take time off and shut everything down but I always find that it takes me at least 2-3 days to turn everything off/relax
