All too often we become so determined to get a task "finished" that we give up the great for the good. For example, recall that when you wrote a paper for school, the teacher told you to write away and then walk away (my words, not theirs). You often got all your ideas out on the paper and then hopefully, took a break. When you went back, you probably found things that you wanted to improve, corrected some errors and thought of new ways to present your ideas. It's kinda like a fly wheel, you get it going and then the momentum can lead you further down the path...as long as you give it a breather!
So, on your next project or creative task, try to plan a little extra cushion in your timeline so you can leave your creation, take a breather, and go back later to improve it. Viola! Good to Great. Plus, taking a breather can help you mentally and physically. More studies are showing that sitting is contributing significantly to our obesity and heart disease epidemic. Simply getting up and walking around for 3 minutes every hour can significantly reduce your risk for both obesity and heart attack!
