Taking time away from the hustle and bustle we call “life” will open the mind.
If you ever get the chance to devote 30 days to assessment of where you are in life, how you got there and the chance to explore how youd like your life journey to proceed, take it.
Thirty days gives one the chance to go without agenda, without plan. One can enjoy the journey so much more, achieve more, if given the time to take it slowly.
So many of us plan so much into our off time. We think of vacation as a collection of activities and learning experiences that while experiential arent really self-fulfilling.
I think thats why golf has become one of the foremost travel activities. While some just want to experience the competition among friends or the vistas of a new venue, many players also enjoy the quiet camaraderie, the introspection and contemplation golf subliminally affords.
Most of us plan time away from work so as to maximize every moment and in the process lose the essence of relaxed recharging. Reservations, tee times, spa appointments, strict itineraries all go to making sure we are entertained every moment missing nothing but really missing everything. The planning itself is seriously stressful. We tend to cram so much into so little time because we want to make the most out of a vacation.
How many times have you heard, I had to come back to work from my vacation so I could rest?‘
I think I might need some time away.
Time to get my passport renewed.
