It’s great to unplug and step away from the daily grind and see the forest for the trees though. When you realize what you’re working for – it makes it so much easier get back and hit it. It was a great time off with my wife and kids: hiking, swimming, fishing. My son caught his first Musky…thought he won the Superbowl!
One of my take-aways this time was that I really love what I do. Not everyone can say that. There is a real vocational dimension to helping people with their most important projects that motivates me to do the best for my clients.
Also, although some people automatically think technology is extremely cool and fun (guilty) it is also continuing to change the game for everyone, so you need to pay attention.
On that note, I was reviewing some of my favorite blog reads while away and I think this one from Seth Godin wins. It’s a concise summary about the transition from the production > information > “information about information” economy and gets you thinking about all the opportunities yet to be seized…
Better get back to work!
