Planning 10-12 weeks vacation every year.
It’s still the best business decision I ever made.
Listening to Dan Sullivan, founder of Strategic Coach, talking about Free, Focus and Buffer Days in July 1993 (Toronto) and, after 2 years of procrastination, taking the plunge in 1996.
Sometimes doing crazy stuff (like the trip to Oman in February this year), sometimes a holiday in the sun, sometimes enjoying what The British Isles has to offer, sometimes just a week to breath and self-organise at home.
This week it will be a cottage in West Wales, slow starts to the day, reading good literature, training runs in a new environment, long beach walks with the dogs, home cooked dinners and, most importantly of all, great conversation – just the two of us.
Off the grid.
You should try it.
The Coach Barrow blog will be back on Monday, 20th November.
