I have just returned from a much-needed two-week vacation with my family. It was nice to “recharge the battery” and decompress in preparation for a busy summer and fall at work.

Have you planned some time off this summer as well? Don’t you dare skip vacation this year! Everyone needs a break from the daily rigours of life.

I know some people have the mindset that they will impress their bosses by skipping vacations and I am sure that you can guess my opinion on that. I DON”T LIKE IT!

Trust me, take the break – you need it!

If finances are an issue – you can even have a “staycation”. Take holidays and not go anywhere.

Here is an interesting article that I came across about “staycations”. It is a few years old, but still relevant today:

Enjoy your summer, and don’t forget to take some time for YOU!

When Is The Last Time You…..

  1. said thank you to a customer for their business or got “wild and crazy” and hand wrote them a thank you card?
  2. helped a co-worker just ‘cuz?
  3. read a book or listened to an audio book in your chosen career path to help take your game to the next level?
  4. grabbed coffee for your inside sales or other support people or took them for lunch?
  5. made a co-worker laugh when they were having a bad day?
  6. told somebody “fantastic job!”
  7. took a real lunch break to relax and recharge for the rest of the day?
  8. emailed a colleague or friend a podcast, blog or article that you found helpful
  9. really listened to somebody when they were talking to you?
  10. planned a really fun vacation to get away from it all?

10 friendly reminders as your week starts to wind down!

I would be flattered if you used this as a checklist to help motivate yourself to do things that you wouldn’t normally do.

Keep me posted on your progress and good luck!
