What You Do Outside of Work Matters

Learn how your life outside of work has a direct effect on your work life.

As much as those people on Twitter with tens of thousands of followers and verified accounts are telling you to keep hustling, stay on top of your game, and perhaps, even wake up at 4:00 a.m. to be as successful as the world’s richest CEOs, don’t be fooled. They’re just trying to sell you something. You need to look after yourself.

In this chapter, we’ve already covered a myriad of ways in which letting go can benefit you, including delegation, not worrying about outcomes you can’t control, better managing your capacity, and creating the conditions for your R-mode brain to discover new connections, patterns, and innovations.
