Getting Away from the Everyday

vacation viewLisa and I are off on vacation in Traverse City. While we are both still working, this has already proven to be a most relaxing time. Even a working vacation gets you clear of the normal daily noise and gives you time to reflect and relax. You come back energized and ready to face whatever your normal life has planned for you.

Similarly, your job or your business might need a little vacation shake-up.

Doing the same-old same-old day in and day out is sure to result in half-hearted and mediocre work. Every once in a while you need to break out and try something new.

  • Take a class.
  • Read a book.
  • Go on a retreat.
  • Try a new piece of software.
  • Visit a new networking group.
  • Work from a new location.
  • Volunteer to work on a new project.
  • Write an article.
Heck, by even just changing up your normal schedule, you might be surprised by the increase in your interest and effectiveness of what you do. Give it a shot!

So, what did you do recently to change up your business or job?
