Your inspiration vacation
This summer I spent a lot of my time on Necker Island, since there’s no better place for me to unwind. I had a great, inspiring break that is going to keep me charged in the months ahead. Now that readers in many parts of the globe are returning from their vacations, it’s a good time for us to take stock and consider how we actually spent our time, as opposed to how we promised ourselves to spend it.
During your vacation, how often did you look at your smartphone? How many quick jobs did you do on your laptop? How many work e-mails did you respond to? Could they have waited until you returned to the office, or could someone else have answered them instead? When you’re on holiday, it’s nice to have a Wi-Fi connection, if only so you can see what’s happening on Twitter or share some snapshots. However, it’s important that you don’t allow your smartphone to tether you to the daily work at your office and interrupt your vacation.
Maintaining focus on having fun isn’t just about rest and recuperation: When you go on vacation, your routine is interrupted; the places you go and the new people you meet can inspire you in unexpected ways. As an entrepreneur or business leader, if you didn’t come back from your vacation with some ideas about how to shake things up, it’s time to consider making some changes.
