Re-Treat and Take a Break

One of the biggest mistakes people make is not making the time to take a break, short or long, to refresh, renew or re-treat themselves.  And that’s a critical mistake if you want to optimize your performance to live a life of ‘Oh, yeah!’

Putting aside something significant like going on a developmental retreat, people often don’t take a coffee or lunch break, working constantly with the delusion that they can actually get more done that way – when research shows that’s clearly not the case.

In this week’s vlog I explain why most people resist taking a break.  There’s actually a chemical addiction likely in place, hooking you on the chemicals of stress.

Plus I’ll address the two most common justifications for not taking a break and explain why they don’t really hold water.

What’s your self-maintenance program?

You take your car in for regular maintenance so you don’t have a catastrophic breakdown.  How much self-maintenance do you do for yourself – or your company?  Or do you wait until there’s a crisis to react and pump in loads of resources you can’t afford to get yourself going again?

For an organization, self-maintenance is about ongoing development and learning, and team development.  The more you invest in this consistently, the more effective you’ll be in the long run.

On an individual basis, this means physical exercise, learning, mindfulness and leisure time through vacation and – God forbid! – fun.  You actually are more efficient – and more successful – professionally if you do this, as you’ll discover in this week’s vlog.
