Preparing For Action

Gavin Perrett

I am writing this article from a beach.

In a couple of days I return home after a 10 day break. 

I am grateful for the fact that I can switch off from work the moment I reach an airport and forget about most of the stresses and anxieties that life brings. 

However towards the end of a holiday perhaps a few days before the trip home my mind becomes busy again. 

This occurs because I have allowed myself to relax, given my brain permission to calm down and I am in a new environment. 

Away from the familiar day-to-day pressures it feels like I have pressed the reset button, and I have a fully charged battery ready to go. 

It is at this point that I get the best ideas for my business, my personal development, plans for home, and plans to see family and friends. 

Over the years this has become a ritual of mine which has helped manage reintegration back into normal life after a fabulous holiday. 

Arguably on this holiday I have accomplished more than I have the previous month. 

Here is the list: 

I have listed all of the discussion points and topics for my forthcoming business planning weekend for 2019

Designed a system to reduce stress, overwhelm and anxiety within the business arena

Read 4 books (2 autobiographies and 2 personal development books)

Mapped out the home improvement plan for our new house room by room and placed in an order of priority

Made a list of friends and family that we’ve not seen for ages and sent them all a quick message letting them know that we’d like to see them

Written 4 articles for EnSpirit Global (including this one)

Planned my first day back at work 

A cynic may suggest that I am merely justifying my holiday however the message for me is clear: Take time out regularly, it will reinvigorate your brain. 

Don’t let the months go by without giving yourself a fresh outlook and perspective. 

Give yourself permission to be inspired!

It doesn’t even need to be a holiday. 

Think about taking your laptop to a coffee shop in a large country park - it will do wonders for your imagination.
