Allow yourself to do nothing and feel no remorse. It can bear good fruit.
He still didn't budge, but now a large antelope was standing in the water just a few centimeters away. In the next second, he lifted himself out of the water like lightning, his jaws closed around the animal's neck. "How did you do this?" the young crocodile asked with admiration. “I was inactive,” the old man answered him.
We usually behave like a young crocodile: we think that we must do something to get results.
It seems to us that in order to achieve success, we need to constantly work, build, invent something new. But being busy and being successful are far from the same thing.
Entrepreneur and blogger Aytekin Tank explained why it is sometimes necessary to be inactive and how to make it a habit.
Now the very thought of idleness seems wild to us. We measure people by how many hours they work and how busy they are. Employment has become a symbol of status and success.

You don't have to shut yourself off from family and friends for a week. And few people have the opportunity to do nothing for a whole week. Try a simpler approach: Ditch all electronics and technology over the weekend. Turn off your phone and laptop and hide them in your closet. And try your best not to watch TV.
Give yourself the opportunity to forget about the daily hustle and bustle, come up with new ideas or remember old ones. Perhaps the success of such an exercise will be no worse than that of an old crocodile who caught an antelope.
