The O'Daily is OOO -- And You Should Be Too!

The O'Daily is OOO -- And You Should Be Too!

The O’Daily is OOO this week.

Spending time with family, in nature, making memories, recharging.

If you haven’t taken time off in a while, this is your reminder.

Time away is as powerful as grinding it out.

Just ask Olympic athletes about their rest days.

Or ask a founder about their energy, ideas, and clarity after time off.

Don’t Take My Word For It

Need inspiration? Here are my favorite quotes on the topic.

Software engineer David Clarke on priorities (via James Clear):

20 years from now, the only people who will remember that you worked late are your kids.

Alex Friedman, founder and investor, on why startups fail:

Idk who needs this but I’ve seen a few startups fail because of founder burn out. I haven’t seen any startups fail because a founder took a couple days off.

Adam Blitzer, Pardot co-founder & Datadog COO, on work load**:

There’s always more work to do. It will be here tomorrow. Time to go home.

**paraphrasing what he told us often at Pardot!
