Doing nothing

Sitting on the sofa, sipping coffee and not doing work or thinking about it, is a rare moment for most type-A business personalities. The only other time this happens is hopefully when they meditate or pray (if they practice this), otherwise they are constantly thinking about work. It is difficult for type-A personalities to “switch off”!

Doing nothing occasionally, actually opens up your creativity. The constant thinking and working clogs you. You can become mechanical, boring and not as effective as you think. It is true that there is no shortcut to hard work, however, hard work does not mean hardly taking a break. It means working hard but also spending time with loved ones, exercising, reading and quiet relaxing time. It is the balance you need – the “Corporate Sufi” way!
