I've been traveling for the past two weeks, and it has been great. The first week was all meetings in Georgia, but week two has been a week at the beach with a four year old. Stressful? Not really. Entertaining, constantly. Watching her experience so many "firsts" has been priceless.
My office staff has done a great job taking care of business at home, but even with them, I've been able to get one house under contract and a second contract looks like it is coming. I could be here worrying about business, or I could be here letting my brain and body have a break.
Staring out at the ocean is my favorite place. This morning, I watched the dolphins feeding just off shore. My granddaughter has waited for that scene all week. She was not disappointed. When I'm here, my head clears and my thoughts create ideas for future business and future projects. I jot those thoughts down and I will revisit them when I return next week.
High type A personalities like me tend to think we can run full speed all the time, but the truth is, we can't. I would encourage you to take time, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of your favorite place. You'll be more productive when you return.
