A special offer for people who are back from their vacation fully recharged and hyped up about upcoming projects: 10% OFF on all products in our store until Monday 9 AM CET.
Here's a nice definition of work-life balance: you should be as happy going to work as you are returning home... but not more.
That ideal is tough to maintain. If you love your work you can get hyped up about professional projects and be excited going to work every morning. Maybe you bring work home; pour yourself completely into it.
As you go at it full-throttle week by week, fatigue starts to mount. At first, it has a way of creeping up unnoticed. Eventually, you can read the signs. Coffee doesn't wake you up like it used to. The morning commute becomes a drag. You feel you're not bringing your A-Game. The scale tips towards excitement about going home. But when you get there you're not really there... your mind drifts and wanders.
Hopefully, you take a holiday as soon as this happens. Do something different for a while. Shake off the residue of boredom that accumulates from performing a daily routine over and over for months. Go to the beach, bury all the frustration and tiredness in the sand and leave it there (or on a mountain peak or on some lantern-lit secluded small street in an exotic city).
Return back fresh, recharged, and with a new perspective about what you want to accomplish in the 52 weeks ahead of you. Work is exciting again. And you are that much wiser than last year about pacing yourself and maintaining that balance. You will be able to maintain peak performance longer than last time.
If you are wise about maximizing your productivity and efficiency, get the development tools that will help you. Are you finally ready for a 7th generation Easy board? Do you plan projects with new architectures and need a compiler? Or do you want to cut down on the time it takes to build a prototype with few specific click boards? Whatever you need, until Monday 10 AM CET, you get 10% OFF at checkout.
