Howdy, Zack here.

Today, I'm urging you to do something radical: take a break.

Wondering how?


  • Stop What You're Doing​
    Yeah, all of it. It's time to pause.
  • Stop Making Excuses
    We all have endless to-do lists. Today, let's prioritize rest.

Until next Wednesday, treat yourself to the restorative power of taking a break. You might be surprised by how good it feels.

Howdy, Zack here.There is no tomorrow. There is no yesterday. There is only today. We plan for the future. We reflect back to the past. Yet, the most important moment is now. It's easy to get caught up in thinking about the future or reminiscing about the past. I'm guilty of this, too. My wife, Gwen, and our kids will tell you so. They know how much I love seeing the old photos of 'when' scroll across the Apple TV. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn't overshadow the...
