taking a break
Yes, it's possible to get back together after taking a break -- but first you need to establish ground rules.
Most of us are aware that taking breaks from physical activity is necessary to recuperate and prevent injuries. Taking breaks in our mental work is equally helpful, and can be a great boost to our productivity as well.
Many of us are used to just breaking away in the summer once we have put in a solid six months of hard of work. I wanted to break that habit. So putting fear aside, I left for an amazing adventure in Peru's Sacred Valley.
When one task gets crossed off of the list, three more show up. It is all part of growing your business, dreaming bigger and getting things done. We need to understand that there will never be a final line that we will cross before we are done and can take a break.
In short bursts all of this is tolerable and maybe even desirable to get the adrenaline flowing. But as a steady diet the stress can become detrimental -- not only to the business owner but to the business, as well.
I don't know how else to explain the experience besides saying we put a pause on real life and took a break. We let ourselves immerse in nothing but fun and joy and forgot about everything else temporarily.
