Happy Memorial Day
I took full advantage of Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps it is because the kids are all on their own and I could. I started on Wednesday. I worked on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday but remotely. I soon got into a groove and before I knew it I was off blogging and email for days. It feels good. I noticed that my email inbox has slowed down too. Makes me happy to see that.
I spoke at Techstars a few weeks ago and I actually spoke about the importance of taking time off. Someone asked me when do you know it is time to take off. I said when you fall asleep at your computer and you realize that you are no longer productive I’d call that a good time. Getting away makes you more productive when you return. Recharging those batteries are a key to life.
Taking time off to focus on the little things makes such a huge difference. The things that I focused on over the last few days were making sure I kept an eye on the cake so it did not burn. Making sure I did not get too much sun. Making sure the wine refrigerator was filled. Making sure there was enough dinner for everyone including stop-ins. Making sure that I finished the book I was reading. These are the little things in life that make for a relaxing three day weekend.
Looking forward to more relaxation as the summer progresses. Happy Memorial Day…enjoy the day and make sure not to overcook the burgers.
