Sometimes we need more responsibility. More entries on the vision board. It's possible that in the times we feel lost, maybe its not rest we crave, but more work and the discipline to clear the checklist. Even after the roughest of days many of us feel a sense of purpose, accomplishment and achievement that resonates above the requirement of compensation.
Carving out a designated time to incorporate new tasks, build a skill, or create content could be the key to getting out of a slump or creative block. The idea is to avoid contracting because of fear, and try expanding because of optimism.
Rest, quiet time and off days are absolutely valid and an important part of the process. Different blockages require different methods, but sometimes the only way out, is through.
