I have been so pumped to be reading and speaking with business owners who are super excited about what’s in store for 2014. But then again, what’s not to be excited about? A new year is a great time to make some changes, to set goals and to really move forward. Honestly, though, this opportunity exists every second of every day, right?
I wanted to share something with you that I discovered just the other week. As some of you know, I took an opportunity over the holiday period to escape the world and disconnect for a good 5 days to recharge my batteries. I took long walks along the beach, I sat and read at the beach, I even wolfed down some delicious chocolate in bed one night. It was great!
I’ve now been back working with clients and I’ve never felt so rejuvenated and recharged and FOCUSED. Because things worked out so well the second I returned home I scheduled my next 5-day break in 90 days’ time. Here are my 3 reasons to schedule a good break every 90 days:
1 – Isolation leads to revelation!
Many people are afraid to spend time alone. But, I can tell you from experience that this is when your BEST ideas surface! This is the time when your questions get answered and you gain clarity on what you really want in life and in business.
2 – If YOU don’t work, nothing does!
You need some time out…it’s that simple. If you continue to grind things out and push through working massive hours 365 days a year you inevitably reach the point of diminishing returns. You can’t work at your peak when you’re getting burned out, so give yourself a chance to disconnect from technology and your everyday life…and reconnect with YOURSELF.
3 – Treat yourself!
Work your rear end off for 90 days then reward yourself for all of that hard work for 5 days. Chill out and relax in your favorite location – or go discover something new. It’s already exciting for me to see the next getaway on my calendar. It’s a way to say “thank you” to yourself for working as hard as you do. So right this second open up your calendar and put in your 5 day retreat.
But for now, it’s time to get to work. Heads down, ladies and gentlemen, and smash your targets in your business over the next 90 days. If you’re wanting some guidance on attracting and converting new clients you can read about my Client Attraction Formula private mentoring program here.
