I mean it.
Take a break. Step away. Go for a walk. Head out for a run.
Even better – take a vacation, get on a plane or jump in the car and drive away for a while.
Even if we find ourselves checking emails while at the beach, surreptitiously making phone calls or pondering our business while we are supposed to be relaxing, a change of scenery can do wonders for our perspective.
Small business owners live, sleep eat and breathe their business. Because of this close proximity we can lose perspective on what’s actually going on.
A few days’ break, a bit of r and r, will help re-charge and re-focus.
