It’s time to get away. Time to escape the hustle of bustle of everyday life for a short period of time and come back fresh. Whether it’s a weekend away camping, or a week on a tropical vacation, this time can be crucial to you being able to maintain the high level of focus and productivity people like me thrive on in day to day life.
If you don’t take this time to recharge you risk burn out, a very real thing these days. As we move into the more technology fuelled era of being able to work anywhere, it seems the days get longer and longer. You can work from anywhere, and if you’re motivated then you tend to find the work unavoidable whenever you have a free moment. Taking some time to disconnect frees you from this constant worry about work.
I’m spending the next week on a vacation and doing my best to avoid the temptations of the work to allow myself to truly relax and let my body and brain recharge to the 100% level I’m used to them running at on a day to day basis.
Have a great week everyone!
Its been said time and time again, that nobody has ever achieved greatness within their comfort zone. This rings true in almost all facets of life. Whether you gauge your great success in life on your career, your finances, your personal life, or your health and fitness, you’ll never achieve greatness in any of these facets by sticking within your comfort zone. Making mistakes and failing is what allows us to learn and better ourselves along the road to Success. If you never leave your comfort zone, you never take risks, if you never take risks, you minimize failure and in turn you minimize your ability to learn. If you can’t learn, you’ll never possess the knowledge and skills needed to truly be successful.
Get out of your comfort zone, if you’re shy, talk to new people. If you’re out of shape and self conscious, try exercising, whatever getting out of your comfort zone means to you, try it. Once you get out of your comfort zone, you will make mistakes, you will fail, and if you treat these failures as a learning experience and learn rather than getting discouraged, you’ll be closer to success on the next attempt, and the next after that. Doing this over and over again, trying, failing, and learning is what allows us to inch towards success, bit by bit, until we’ve accomplished something we can truly be proud of.
Now, go on and pursue your Climb to Success.
All good things come to an end right. After spending a week in what is basically a paradise it’s now time to return home to the hustle and bustle of daily life.
As much as a vacation is an amazing feeling, and you can really distance yourself mentally and get into a true state of relaxation, it’s nice to come home. By the end of every vacation, I always feel ready to come home. As strange as it is I end up missing work. I don’t feel like I’m getting bogged down, or worried about the amount of work piling up, I just eventually start to miss the day to day hustle and bustle I’m used to once I’ve spent a couple days relaxing.
If you truly love what you do like I do, I’d think that you too may end up missing the satisfaction you get from a job well done after a solid week of leaving your mind completely at ease. This week of not a worry on my mind, and never without a cold drink in my hand has left me fully relaxed, fully recharged, and ready to come back at full strength and not risk burning out anytime soon.
If you can’t step back and relax and enjoy some time to yourself, then you should. It’ll inevitably help you along your own Climb to Success.
Until next time,
This week I’m out of town taking the opportunity to rest my mind and keep the burnout at Bay. This vacation is more than just a test though, a vacation to me is a time to consumer information without distraction. A great time to read a new book, meet new people, and become a better version of yourself, all without the common distractions you face at home.
Have a great week everybody!
