Need a Moment.

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.

-Chinese Proverb

If you haven’t noticed, I’m taking some time away from the blog this month. I’m working on my to-do list before heading out of town for an end-of-summer vacation.

I got to thinking about taking time off. Why is it sometimes almost more stressful to take time away? You have to do more work before and after a vacation to “make up” for that time lost. But is that time really “lost?”

Taking some time to reflect and rejuvenate yourself (or your business) at least once a year shouldn’t be counted as “lost” time. It should be encouraged! Won’t we all think a little clearer, with a little more bounce in our step, and perhaps even come up with new and different ideas if we take the time and let our minds take a break?

It’s really the same story in business. Every business is in danger of becoming stagnant. When each day is the same as the last, maybe it’s time to step away for a few days, rest and come back to the table refreshed.

So, that’s what I’m going to do this month. I am going to try not to have an agenda other than just work hard and then rest hard. Keep my mind clear, which will inevitably lead to the questions – what am I doing, why am I doing it, and am I happy?

Have you asked yourself those questions lately?
