Improve Productivity – Take a Holiday

Last updated September 11, 2015
Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’m back and I’m full of energy, enthusiasm, clarity and drive. Why? Because I’ve had a nice long break. This time I’ve taken a longer time out than just my 2 week holiday – but I needed it!

Just like the kids who have 6 weeks over the summer holiday to re-charge (or is that for the teachers to re-charge…?) the batteries; I gave my brain a rest and allowed it time to clear out the irrelevant junk that was bumping around in my head.

My batteries are full and September means back to work – a little over 3 months to year end and lots to do. This time I start the last quarter with clarity and a firm goal to keep me on track – doing what’s important and not being far too busy doing nothing.

Did you give yourself time off over the summer or were you the only one who didn’t have a holiday? Time to rectify that mistake – book a holiday now.

You can’t keep running on empty – time off is a necessity not a luxury. Without a break you will just become less and less effective and probably make yourself ill and then you’ll be forced to take time off.

No-one gets a badge for being a dead workaholic.


  1. Take some time away from your business
  2. Clear the clutter from your head (Microsoft is doing that to my inbox now)
  3. Get some clarity about what you’re doing and why
  4. Re-charge your batteries – keep healthy
  5. Set the goals
  6. Focus on the important stuff
  7. Book your next holiday
