Knowing your limits

May 29 2013 Published by under Grad School, Lab

I've been working so much lately that I have literally run myself into the ground.  The physical and mental exhaustion is causing me to feel punch drunk.  In fact my vision is blurring while I'm writing this, while I'm waiting for my western to finish incubating in secondary.  I'd love to take a day or two off but I want to keep up the positive momentum that I've got going.  I don't want to take a day off and fuck up my research mojo right now.

That said, I'm going to have to take some semblance of a break soon.  I may not be at my limit right now but I'm quickly approaching it.  Just need to make it to the weekend...

Sorry for the rambling

    I'm in the same boat right now. Been doing 7-days a week for 3 or 4 months now. It's not healthy but I'm in a productive streak right now so I may keep it going for a few weeks more, or until the GF says enough is enough!!!!

    Best of luck Dave, drop by if you need to vent or rant.

    Sounds like your fast approaching the diminishing returns threshold. Take a breather.
