Have you ever put up a sticky note where you see it in order to not miss some­thing, but end up see­ing it so much that you after a while do not see it (and still miss the thing that was writ­ten on the note)?

This is sim­i­lar to what hap­pens when you work con­ti­nous­ly on a task with­out tak­ing breaks.

In this episode, the 531st, I share why you should refrain from that and what you can do instead.

How often does it suit you to take a short break if you do not get one auto­mat­i­cal­ly? Write to me and let me know. I am one of those who find it easy to get lost in a task for a long time, so I am curi­ous to hear what works for you.
