Just back from a wonderful week with my family and friends. We spent part of our week on the beautiful Oregon coast, pictured here! Had the chance to play golf with my kids, and one of the highlights there was watching the two of them in a cart together, playing together, laughing together. A Dad’s dream!
Getting ready to head into work this morning, I caught myself whistling and excited about heading back to a job I love, in a place I’ve spent my entire adult life, working with people I admire and respect. That’s a pretty good realization to have!
I also had the realization that time away from work, makes you better when you’re at work. I supposed I’ve always known that, but heading into vacation, I wasn’t feeling particularly stressed or overwhelmed, so vacation was just a bonus. It’s possible I needed it more than I realized. It all has to do with balance. Even with jobs we love, working with people we love, spending time away with people we love more than our jobs, is the most important thing.
I hope everybody gets the chance to spend time away, refresh, reboot, relax, and then come back to work fired up and ready to roll!
