THE WORD | THESE BRIEF BITS OF INBOX INSPIRATION BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

to all our Whiskey Weekend crew -- Ashley & Erin & Eric & Lauren & Melanie & Juan Pablo & Rachel & Mike & Ben & Yvonne & Mel & Jared & Troy & Aisha & Uyen & Bergen & Madison & Paulie & Jason & Niki & John Allison & Alex & Collin & Megan & Oskar & Chris & Ali & Rashinda & Neil -- thanks for making it such a fabulous way to end our year.

WHAT WE'RE THINKING ABOUT | TAKING A BREAK
Some cultures are great at taking breaks -- whether it's through gap years, or naps, or even just prioritizing disconnecting. It's HARD to take a break when you work for yourself. You can always be working, and sometimes that "can" translates into a feeling of "should," even if we only have our own selves or standards to blame.

One of the things that's been most apparent to us from traveling is how much breaks -- small and large -- help us to be our best selves: as business partners, as spouses, as friends, and just as individuals being respectful to ourselves and our need to relax those cognitive functions every once in a while.

With that said, this is the last you'll hear from us in 2019 -- and then we'll be back in your inbox mid-January. We hope you're able to find time to give yourself a break too -- whether it's disconnecting from social media, work emails, or even just taking an extra long bubble bath!

"Although widely held, the belief that merit rather than luck determines success or failure in the world is demonstrably false. This is not least because merit itself is, in large part, the result of luck.

Talent and the capacity for determined effort, sometimes called ‘grit’, depend a great deal on one’s genetic endowments and upbringing" - Clifton Mark

2019 Longreads Best of the Year

#ReadingRainbow #WordsFTW #Bookworm
If you're more likely to curl up on the couch to read rather than to watch, might we point you in the direction of Long Reads? From the story of the mortician who turned his family funeral home into a black market organ gathering operation to reckless loans within the taxi industry, these are good excuses for some time alone -- and also provide some good conversation topics to impress your family and friends. ::LONG READS::
