Vacation Time for Business Leaders
adds significant value to Business Success!
Vacation time is a hot topic for many business leaders and owners now. Why? It’s been a long winter, it’s time for fresh ideas, it’s the beginning of springtime, and summer fun times are nearing. Remember those days?
Remembering the Practice of Vacation Time
This past week I was speaking with a client and we discussed his holiday plans. He has pre-teen children and we discussed the fun of his family time. Then he asked me what my plans were for the Holiday Weekend. I shared that my husband was working on Sunday, and I would as well. Next he said, “Or… you could take a break.”
Ok, it took me a little while to own this because I’m on roll with a couple of projects and I’d have a whole day to “rock it”! But, this wonderful client of mine offered wisdom I once shared with him and I had to own the power of this truth. I am a believer in taking breaks because it is a wise health move, a great approach to mental clarity, an excellent tool to improve productivity, and an emotional destressor.
The Value of Vacation Time
What do you think I did? Decided a “time out” would be good for my body, mind, spirit, and soul. I am taking a time out. Walk away from business for a bit and come back refreshed! The reminder what priceless.
We all need to remember to unplug. I’m a great proponent of “work hard; play hard”. I have a mini-vacation coming up next month so I thought I could push a little harder now. Rationalizing that during the motorcycle riding season I unplug plenty, but I forgot how this is equally important – right now!

p. s.: Vacation time is important to me and my husband. We both have strong work ethics and endured extremely long weeks over the year. We motorcycle ride every opportunity we get during the warmer months. Later this year we will join our nephew and his bride for a Destination Wedding in Hawaii, which should be a great vacation time! Courtesy of the United States Marine Corps, we lived in Hawaii right after we were married – in one way it will be like “going back home” for us!
