Did you take a vacation this year? As a business leader, we realize that getting away is probably quite the challenge. However, we at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. would like to remind you that getting away from time to time is imperative to your well-being. If you truly can’t escape for even a long weekend, we hope you at least make a point to disconnect.
Research indicates that almost half of small business leaders forego their vacations because they can’t seem to unplug. Even those who do manage to seek some rest and relaxation are often preoccupied by what could be happening at work. Our team members at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. assume this must be incredibly exhausting!
If you struggle to disconnect, we suggest that you begin by identifying all the resources you have that enable you to do so. You’ve probably hired a capable and efficient team full of trusted professionals, for example. Before you embark on your journey, you can put all the necessary plans in place, such as who will be in charge while you’re away and how you will fund your vacation.
Obviously, once you do take your trip you should turn off your phone and other devices. Better yet – leave them at home. Every time you catch yourself thinking about finding a way to connect, focus instead on your overall relationship with technology. How do you know when your tech use is for efficiency and when it’s simply compulsory?
