“With our performance over and our work done,
into the sunset we can run.”
Perhaps moving off into the sunset is not quite the appropriate way to conclude a day’s work. Nevertheless, the idea of physically leaving the workplace as a way of interrupting a phase of the day is possibly not without merit.
The mental space created by leaving an area of work for another location, into the sunset so to speak, aids us in finding closure for those tasks completed. Without this break, we may well continue to run through details of recently finished events rather than be concentrating on what lies before us.
Additionally, giving ourselves this opportunity to set off into the sunset can provide us with the chance to recharge our energy. And our subsequent offerings surely deserve our full commitment and attention.
