What do you do when . . .

Life gets so busy.
The to-do list is too long.
The phone keeps ringing and you can't get anything done.

Stop.

It sounds counterintuitive, but when the world starts to crash in on you, stop.

Everytime the list, work, busy life starts to hammer me I instinctively start to push back harder. It feels like if I just get one more thing done I'll be back on top of things. Then it all comes tumbling down and I feel even more overwhelmed.

The last few weeks I started to recognize when I took time out to rest, I'm more productive. How strange? So I tried it again. One more time it proved fruitful. Hmm. Starting to see a pattern here.

What about you? Are you willing to stop and rest for the sake of productivity?
