Recharge your battery ... take time off

Do you own the business, or does the business own you?


As I write this, my family is planning to leave on vacation. We’re going to spend a few days with family and friends, then a few days in a lakeside cottage. Nothing exotic, just a lazy, restful vacation. Vacation. To those of us who are self-employed, that often sounds like a foreign word...

I remember several long phone conversations with Nik. He was a very open and giving guy. He invited me to dinner and a ride in one of his collector cars if I was ever in Chesterton County, Pa. I invited him out for some great Italian food and tour of the Chicago skyline if he was ever in my town. But, sadly, I never got to meet Nik face-to-face. I thought there would always be another day for that; we both had busy work schedules.

Unfortunately, there isn't always another day to get around to it.

Finding time is hard

If you wait to find time for a vacation, you never will. Urgent things have a way of crowding out important things. Instead, make the time. Doesn’t matter if it’s just a few days or a full week. Take your schedule right now, call someone close and schedule some time off together.

You’ll be glad you did.

The work will still be there when you get back. Collections will still be there. The bills will still be there. But a few days off can help put everything in perspective.
