Did you know that taking time off can actually help workers get more done? When you're working for yourself you get to refresh yourself.
Know what else? You're responsible for taking time off!
Memories are funny things, aren’t they? I’m packing boxes now.
I’m preparing for a journey. In fact, I’m packing to place my belongings aside.
Because I plan to travel light. As in I’m flying with carry-on luggage only.
As I pack, I'm remembering my experiences of how taking time off can actually help workers get more done. I’ve found it helps me!
It’s funny. But each time I've invested in going off on a journey I've found production goes up.
My mind focuses. My output increases.
I get more results!
I want that right now! I need it too, for I’m working at recovering myself from way too many life events.
I'm going after focus and output aggressively by preparing to fly.
From my experience taking time off can actually help workers get more done. I've found that to be true both before and after time off.
(1) While packing you remember what inspires you
(2) When you're about to travel you're focused
(3) You refresh and recharge
When you work from a computer you can do so anywhere and anytime, right? That’s a way to be able to work on days you want to work and be somewhere else other days.
I’m preparing for an adventure that begins on Sunday. Simply by climbing on an airplane.
So I'm packing boxes to put aside. I'm packing carry-on luggage to keep with me.
My packing work reminds me of another journey. It was a much bigger journey travel-wise! I packed my stuff in boxes for a four month world tour.
Part of that world tour was a pilgrimage of three weeks. 21 days of pretty much daily flying within India! I went flying to what felt a different world at each destination.
I flew to beaches where I stayed in 5-star hotels. I sailed the Indian Ocean on a tiny sailboat and went too far out to sea on an even tinier windsurfing board.
I climbed through thousands of years of history to enter ancient caves. When you’re traveling, you never know what is going to happen, do you?
For example, did you know that Mikhail Baryshnikov danced again with the Bolshoi Ballet in 1987? He danced in Calcutta.
Guess who was there? Me! Mother Teresa.
Neither one of us saw the performance because we spent the entire time gazing into one another’s eyes. Meeting a living Saint is an extreme example but taking time off can actually help workers get more done by inspiring them in ways unimagined!
