“Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work
your judgment will be surer.
Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in
at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”
– Leonardo Da Vinci
I’m hosting a 2 day retreat for some business owners today and tomorrow and it has re-
enforced the value of stopping again to me.
Life can be so busy and noisy that often we can forget what really matters to us – professional and personal.
You’re not the same person as you were a year ago, so it’s to be expected that your priorities
and values will shift and change.
That’s why having a real STOP, is so valuable.
Time to reflect, really think and get clarity on the road ahead.
As we move into a time where many will be thinking about and planning holidays, I’d ask
you to consider making time somewhere in all of that just for you.
It may be 1 day, 1 night or evening, an afternoon or something longer. Time to slow down, is
perhaps an increasingly valuable commodity in a world that is getting busier and noisier – and as a result often more confusing.
There’s never a good or right time to take time out and STOP. It has to be planned in.
So an action to consider is… looking out over the next 6 months, what STOP time can I plan
for myself now?
When you’re better, everyone around you wins. This is one way to help that.
