I don't take vacations... 1. My entire life is a vacation... I get to sit poolside on any given day. I can be on the beach in less than 15 minutes (this is Miami after all). I can pack up and go anywhere in the world with no notice if I wanted to. I created a life that affords me that luxury... And I did it on purpose. There was a time where I was unable to (see past post about my older brother passing away for reference). 2. I find no need to take a break from real life. I enjoy it a great deal!!! I love my clients, I love my work. I love what I do. I get to change people's lives everyday! What's more fun than that?
I build in regular rest and relaxation. I am very serious about boundaries. And I refuse to do "work" that I don't actually enjoy on some level (I outsource the rest). And, here's the kicker, I DON'T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT.
Having said that, I do travel though! I'm thinking Paris and Barcelona next. Where are you going?
"A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play..."
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
