Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a … What’s that word again?
AKA – use those legs and get out there :)
I wanted to expand on a thought I mentioned in an earlier post. And let me preface this with a total acknowledgment that nobody is made of money and we all have responsibilities at home / work that keep us tethered to a reality not replete with playboy jet-setting. BUT – hear me out…
We all need to escape from the stifling monotany of our comfort zone from time to time.
It’s your daily routine. For most of us that includes a commute to work, putting in time at the office, the same ol’ same ol’ lunch options, grabbing a cupcake for Sally’s birthday, meeting after meeting. We all know this routine.
I should also add that I love my job. I love the people I spend time with all day Monday through Friday.
But I do my job SO much better when I can take a breath and go somewhere that drastically alters my thought process.
Traveling breaks down the safe confines of the 9-5 routine and challenges you to think differently. It exposes you to variety and stimuli that you will simply never get at home.
When I get back from this trip I’ll literally have lit up different parts of my brain and engaged in problem solving never possible within my comfort zone.
That’s pretty incredible – and why you should tell your boss that your next vacation is so necessary to your optimal job performance. ;) I just winky-faced but I’m serious!
