Do You Unplug?

It's summer in North America and millions are enjoying some time away. It's a chance to take in the warmer temps and spend some time with friends and family. It does the mind and body good to take a break from it all.

But with the exception of vacation or the odd sick day, when did you last spend an entire 24 hours completely unplugged? No technology, no meetings, no deadlines, just time to clear your head or as I suggest to all my clients - think time.

Reboot and Recharge

What would happen if you didn't check email for a day or attend a meeting tomorrow or not return that call until next week? The sun will come up, life will go on, and in fact, you may even be more rested and sharper to deal with deadlines after some time away.

Leadership is about delivery and results but in order to be sharp for the team, the project, and the company, we all need to step off the treadmill once in a while.

Something to not think about on your vacation.
