If you’re feeling strung out, stuck, or stressed by your interior design business, now’s the time to get outta town.
If you’re uncertain where to go from here, go there.
“There” can be a mountain resort, or a sandy beach, or a nice town a few hours away. Get away for a few weeks, a few days, or even a few hours. Just…get outta of town.
Nothing can give you more clarity about your business than time away from your business. That means time away from your smartphone and email and blackberry and every other link to your workaday world.
A recent bicycle trip to South Dakota reminded me how renewing and energizing time away can be.
I was so busy enjoying myself pedaling along a trail that was converted from a rail line, passing through recreation areas and historic towns, and discovering local cafes and pubs that I didn’t have much time to think about business.
Nevertheless, I came back filled with fresh perspectives and exciting ideas about my coaching, copywriting and speaking business. And I returned with solutions to some challenges which had perplexed me for some time.
Time away is great for your mind, body and soul. And it’s great for your business, too.
