When business owners ‘take time off’ and then post an update saying, ‘I’m back from my time off and I can’t wait to share all the content that’s been incubating!’
That’s not time off.
That’s pressure to show ‘results’ from taking time off.
When I take time off, I have absolutely nothing to show for it when it comes to ‘content.’
Perhaps a photo of my cats. A sunset here & there.
Nope. Nothing. Sorry, folks. I’ve been resting.
Business owners – please – take time off, and do nothing for, in, or with your business in that time.
Don’t use your time off to create content plans for the year.
Workaholism – whether worn as a badge of honour, employed as a tactic to please, prove & justify, or consumed as a method of distraction – is killing your creativity, your community, & your authenticity.
It’s also killing your vitality.
Imagine being a true rebel in this age & instead choose to immerse yourself in doing as little as possible.
Put the technology away.
Be with yourself, without an agenda, or a list of goals, or a plan.
You, as much as anyone, deserve true rest & relaxation.
I promise you, your mind, heart, & nervous system will recuperate, recalibrate, and re-integrate with a clarity and resolve that is more effortless & powerful than before.
Now those are the kind of results worth celebrating.
