When was the last time you go for a holiday? Either alone or with family members, everyone need ‘time out’ to breakaway from what is normal.
Well, for many of my business friends, they did mentioned that it is difficult for them to plan one. Yet, many of them managed to have a proper arranged holiday at least once a year.
My point here is not about having a vacation trip. Let’s find out, why exactly ‘time out’ means to us?
Me? I am taking at least once a week time out and sometime even more. So how could that be?
Time out simply gets me and myself into something else, where I do what I enjoy most and having it for leisure. At this juncture, I can’t afford to make money from my hobby. But, I make money from my current skills and experience.
Let me share on how I managed to have a time out on weekly basis:
+ I ensure that I plan for an activity, which does not require me to think about my work OR business. Sometime, house chores would do the trick. But, not all type of chores and not all the time.
+ I joined some group which has activities that partly my hobby (and slowly making money). This is done online and offline.
+ I allowed myself to find time to spend by visiting places that does not make me think about work : shopping malls, parks and any that suitable. I did not do that shopping, though.
+ I allocated an amount of money to buy and add on my books collection on monthly basis. It could be as low as RM30 per month.
TIME OUT and BREAKAWAY can be arranged for FREE. It all depends on how we managed ourselves and our own expectations.
So, when was the last you bring yourself out of the routine?
Well, have a good weekend ahead friends!
