What happens when you show up with a bad attitude

If your choices are showing up with a bad attitude and not showing up at all, sometimes it’s better to save your energy for another day.

It’s important to be able to identify when you’re at a limit. There are moments when you can keep pushing yourself, but there there are also moments when you must recognize that taking a step back is the smarter option.

Exerting 100% of your energy into something when you are at 20% capacity will achieve a fifth of what you could achieve if you were working at full capacity.

What’s important to learn are the ways that you can take a step back productively. It doesn’t mean that you have to collapse and do nothing, it just means that you have to be able to use what energy you have for other things while you rebuild your ability to tackle your primary tasks at full capacity.
