Resting: Why balance is crucial for busy people. 


Ah…  To-Do list… You are not my badge of worthiness. You are not my reputation. You are not my source of abundance. Just merely an idea.

I have been working full tilt for quite some time. Don’t get me wrong, I love this work. I dive into it.  I am filled with creative ideas non-stop these days. I love helping people.  I will stay up till the wee hours of the morning when I am inspired by a project. I love that part of what I do.

This holiday, however, has taught me something valuable. I deliberately didn’t ‘work’. I did my best to put down my phone, turn off the laptop and genuinely spend time with family. It was interesting.

I had an odd adrift feeling. Not tethered to my long list of projects, I felt both free and nervous. Would my business come crashing to a halt? If I am not focused on it all the time will it go of the rails?

No.

Everything is just fine. No one’s hair caught fire. No problems at all.

What did happen was the realization that I need more time completely OFF. It is a bit of me taking my own medicine, for sure.

So in two weeks, expect me to not answer my email or my phone promptly. I will be resting until I am restored!
