Its a public holiday today and tomorrow, thanks to the Sallah break. Before i forget my manners, Happy Eid-El Kabir to all my Muslim friends and Muslim Architects. I saw lots of rams being slaughtered on Saturday, didn’t get to taste any though.

So its a Monday today, and as promised my weekly motivational posts. I am sure most Architects would be working today despite the holiday. We sure do work really hard. My post today might not seem acceptable because you probably have deigns to finish, lots of works pilled up on your desk, etc, but i intend to motivate you to take some time out today and rest…..yeah i know, you’ve deadlines. When last did you actually pull yourself out of work and just relax, i bet you worked through the weekend too. Read below these great lines from great minds;

  • Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.                                                      – Leonardo Da Vinci 
  • Never lose sight of this important truth, that no one can be truly great until he has gained a knowledge of himself, a knowledge which can only be acquired by occasional retirement.                                                  – Johann Georg von Zimmermann 
  • Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture of leisure as gratification. To put it another way; people who work must take the time to relax, to be with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport.                                                                                                                                           – Pope Francis


So people, its time for a break. Even Pope Francis thinks so. You still have tomorrow to do some work before work officially resumes on Wednesday.

Have fun.
