Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. I love it when the month ends on a Friday. It’s even better when the quarter ends on a Friday, but that won’t be the case this quarter. The reason I like it so much is you get the weekend to really recover. If you’re an athlete, then you know the importance of rest and recovery. For those of you who’ve been following my journey for a while, you may know that I was planning to do a Triathlon later this month. Well of course that event has been cancelled and I’d punted anyway because the whole trying to train for the swim in an above ground pool in my backyard while tethered to a tree lost it’s appeal after about two workouts. It sure made for a funny story, but the reality of that setup was pretty stupid and not very fun. Instead, I’ve settled into a nice 6 day a week routine where I alternate Peloton workouts with running. The point of all this is to say that from a training and growth perspective. The most important day in my schedule is today, it’s Sunday, it’s my rest day. I’ll try to get a little extra sleep, and really give my body a chance to recover. Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not as good at recovery when it comes to work, but I think it’s important. We have to recognize that going all out all the time is a recipe for burnout. It’s important to take a little bit of time to allow yourself that mental break and to give yourself the opportunity to recover and grow, so that when you get back after it, you’re even stronger. Enjoy your rest day my friends. I’ll see you back out there tomorrow.
