I love what I do but I also like to spend quiet time away from my business. This is the life part of my work-life balance. Now that my kids are older it provides time for enjoyment and also for rest so that I am refreshed when I get back into work.
We can all benefit from some quiet time in our lives.
I was fortunate to spend my honeymoon on safari in Kenya. As we waited quietly by a waterhole the wildlife drifted into view and we were lucky to see all of the ‘big five’ animals: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinoceroses, and African buffalo as well as some gentler giraffes and zebra.
At home, when I take time to wait quietly or, more normally for me, to walk or run gently, I am rewarded by ideas.
How often do you get away from your desk to get fresh ideas?
