68. What I learnt From 2 Weeks Off
My family and I were fortunate to be able to take two weeks off this Feb and March.
One week was in the Keys for the Blue Rhino Training, and then we rented a car and met my inn laws in the Tampa area.
Over those two weeks, I did make a few business decisions via text for my office manager.
Other than that, I was off, enjoying my vacation with my family. It was incredible.
I came back and had to let a team member go, but I was so rejuvenated and re-energized.
It reaffirmed how important taking time off is, and creating a team that allows you to do that should be a top priority as you move out of your start-up phase and into an established successful practice.
I plan to take off eight full weeks this year and eight long weekends.
It isn't because I'm lazy or I hate my work.
It's because I want to be excited, focused, and innovative for the next 50 years.
