Several times a year I write about the importance of taking a break before you crash and burn. I get some amazing comments from many of you about how timely my topic is and how much you needed to be reminded. What's ironic is how little of my own advice I actually listen to!
This is a very short post this morning. I want to remind you that while I talk a good game and have years of experience to share with you, too often it's really tough to follow through. I want to help you grow your business, avoiding many of the mistakes so many of us have made, but I'm still making mistakes.
The hardest thing to do in business is recognize you need a break. This was a particularly hard week with a double whammy of some family stuff combined with business challenges. So, in one hour Sheila and I are headed to the beach for most of the day. We're going to hang out on Lido Beach...snorkel for shells...sit in the sun...listen to music...read a book and just kick back and chill.
The usual me would feel I was being irresponsible, but the truth is, it's the most responsible thing I can do today. The perfect way to avoid the "heat" of those flames, when you're about to crash and burn, is simply to do something you love doing. For us, it always involves each other and the ocean.
Anybody want to join us?
Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend and the ability to take a little time off when you need it. Spend time with somebody you love and hug
