How often do you go on vacations where you completely unplug?
If you’re like most attorneys, you might take trips and long weekends (for a comical yet accurate description of the difference between a trip and vacay, read this.
But you probably never take a true vacation where you completely check out.
I used to be the same way.
It took me 10 years of practicing law before I did that and it scared the crap out of me!!!
I shared that story and how I prepared in Episode #13 of the Hustle & Flow podcast.
As I’m preparing for a wonderful trip to Banff (although I’m excited, the amount of hiking on my agenda makes it a trip, not a vacay…), I’m already getting anxious about completely checking out.
Not because I don’t think my business will survive without me. But because I have no idea what to do with myself when I’m supposed to be relaxing!
I was in desperate need of a pep talk, so I decided to cover the topic again but this time with a new twist.
In today’s episode, I’m reviewing research related to vacations (I was shocked and fascinated with the findings) AND I’m doing a short interview with Tarsila Crawford.
After she listened to Episode #13, she took her first fully unplugged vacation in 10 years. Her story is amazing and I’m honored to have had a small part in her journey. ?
