Vacation and work
It seems like the biggest argument, between couples on vacation, is about work. Some statistics show as much as 80% of business owners and entrepreneurs mix vacation and work. I think that’s sad. Does it happen to you? And do you find yourself not truly being in the moment when you’re on vacation?
Vacation and work should be different kinds of time.
Both should be quality time, of course. And I certainly hope you don’t feel like vacation is just an escape from work. When you set up a smooth-running system…and work your system…vacation won’t feel that way. Because you’ll enjoy your work a whole lot more. And your business will be dependable whether you’re there or not.
Sure, your brain needs recovery time from your business. But not to recover from day-to-day dread. Simply to recover from mostly “left brain” thinking. You know…problem solving. Customer care. Ordering supplies. Phone calls. Emails. And the list goes on.
Vacation can help you VACATE that space. At least for a while. And that helps you to refresh and let your creative side flow again. Because when you feel creative and refreshed, your better side comes out. And that can benefit those around you almost as much as it benefits you.
But…how do you do it? How do you vacate work?
First, prioritize your calendar. Schedule your day-to-day, your appointments, and yes…even your vacation. No part of your schedule should be just an afterthought. Each part should be deliberate. Because it’s all vital to your health and the health of your business.
Be sure your business operations are documented. So other people or automation can manage it while you’re gone. Prepare or make preparations in advance. Since others rely on you, set proper expectations. And train your professional staff (handpicked, remember?) to handle things till you get back.
It can be done. And you need to do it. So, do it. And I can help. It’s part of why I developed my RondaReady online business coach CRM system. Let me help you enjoy vacation AND work. And let me help you…
