Take a break

Take a break

It’s spring

on-the-beach #2I know it’s blowing snow and -7C in Montreal today, but all the kids and parents are talking about Spring Break, so let’s take apply the concept more generally. Take a break.

Take a break from all the distractions that keep us from making progress on improving our lives, achieving our business objectives, supporting family and friends and making a difference in the world.

Take a break from exaggerated news headlines, from outrageous political rhetoric, from ranting celebrities and activists of all stripes and briefly set aside your concerns for the victims of terrorism, natural disasters, racism and systemic discrimination. Take a break from the business issues that demand attention. Stop trying to manage everything for a week or so, let nature take its course and the markets run where they will. Try not to watch.

Take a break and turn your attention to thoughtful and intelligent commentary from sources you do not normally have time for. Reflect on your own assessment of the big issues. (Then check off a few of the small things you have been neglecting so that you can feel better about accomplishing something useful during the break, instead of just worrying about everything.)

Take a break to assess your personal priorities and time commitments, then re-align your plans to get on track.

I highly recommend regularly taking a break.

Spring or otherwise.

Your Uncle Ralph, Del Chatterson

    Of course if you are already on the beach, you are not bothering to read this post. But a Spring Break is still a good idea.

    See you in Florida next week!!
