I like living in a busy urban centre. It’s convenient, it’s diverse and it’s a lot of fun. But every once in a while, particularly during the warmer months of the year, it’s nice to get away. You need a breath of fresh air.
I was out of the city for probably less than 24 hours. But it was a nice reprieve. And it whet my appetite for upcoming weekends throughout the summer. It’s refreshing. Lately Dr. Brett Steenbarger has been mentioning his recent trip to Norway. He goes on a trip like this once a year, to experience new things and new views.
I think this is great advice.
Especially if you’re a work-focused over achiever in a very competitive field like financial services. Don’t be afraid to unplug every once in a while. Embrace it and feel refreshed.
