It is a little past the normal vacation period, but I'm taking a vacation.
This is an annual trip with the boys (friends for over 15 yrs) we take to different locations every year. As usual, at least since I've been married and have a family, I struggle with leaving; this year I can add tough business to my worries.
I have always been a "glass half full" kind of guy. I am a warrior when it comes to fighting through issues, obstacles and challenges; my wife says I am sometimes determined and loyal to a fault. So how can I pack up and leave when there is a fight to be fought, I need to stand toe to toe with my fellow warriors and fight.
I hear all the time, things were quiet until I left on vacation, I hope this is true for me. I am blessed enough to work with a group of guys that look after each other. I will leave my business in very capable hands, but I still worry I am going to miss something..............
I am hoping for a few moments of Nirvana while I sit in the mountains of Colorado. I am looking forward to sitting with long time friends and talking about life. I hope, like in the old days, for periods of time where it's not about the BIG PICTURE, but simply about the next step. I do believe its vital to recharge your batteries and gain fresh perspective. I have been entrenched in mortgages and marketing and have convinced myself it will be good to walk away for a few days; so why the worry?
I didn't wake up this morning thinking about blogging this, I usaully blog about business. I will say the AR community brings it out in you. I am fairly new to the community, but have had some terrific dialog; it just hit me all at once - "blog it man".
