Have you made time for yourself recently?  The reason I am asking this is that most days we experience complexity, urgency, and an overload of tasks and goals we want to reach. The guiding mantra behind this way of working and living is: “We need to perform at a constant rate and always give our best regardless of anything”.  We hear in many different corridors, in the metro at rush hour or at coworking spaces, that in order to become a successful person we need to work our hardest and always give our best without even taking time to recover from achieving one…
