As much as I love intensity and pressure I have to say, leaning back with a cigar; talking about deep thoughts I can’t find an answer to on my own with my mentors and best friends is one of my favorite things in life. You can cut down a tree way faster if your saw is sharpened. So remember to always take a break and sharpen your saw, work smarter not harder. • ••• #rest #recovery #sci #cigar #padron #brothers #mentors #deep
