This daily success habit goes with Habit 9.

While you should work hard and stay focused while you’re working, you do need times when you can completely shut down.

Schedule rewards for yourself with play. Have fun. Laugh. It will help you be more refreshed and more ready to work. Reward yourself for small achievements as well as large achievements.

Schedule time off for yourself to just play. Go to a ball game. Shoot some pool. Invite some friends over for a game of Yahtzee or Mexican Train Dominos or Cards Against Humanity.

You’ll return to work with more enthusiasm and you’ll get more done.

Don’t wear yourself out. Reward yourself and enjoy yourself.

You only get one life to live and one way to make every second count is to be mindful of how you’re spending your off time.

Be more profitable during your work hours and really enjoy yourself during your off hours.
