Be Intentional … Take a Vacation

By Brandon Cangany, CPA

As the summer sun peeks out of the clouds, now is perfect the time to plan a getaway! But are you hesitant to step away from the office and worried about leaving your work behind? With proper notice and planning, there’s no shame in taking a vacation. Just sit down with your manager to work out a schedule and determine who can take over your tasks while you’re gone. They’ll be grateful for the heads-up!

This also applies to you, Mr. or Ms. Business Owner!

It is not only important to reinforce to your workforce that vacations are important, but the business owner should take time away as well. For all the reasons stated below, everyone can benefit from some “R & R” to return renewed and refreshed!

Time away recharges your batteries and sharpens your focus. When you’re deep in the hustle and bustle of the business world, you can lose sight of larger goals and priorities — especially those personal goals and objectives that get lost in the daily press of responsibilities. Amid the rapid flurry of emails and daily tasks, you may forget what is truly important, and you should not allow immediate but less important tasks to take over your calendar! Slowing down helps you gain perspective on your career path as well as your life outside of work. These long-term perspectives grow clearer when you step away from your desk.

Fun with family soothes the soul. Spending time with loved ones is often the best escape from the stress of our workday lives. It’s important to reward yourself and have some fun with those you hold most dear. Time with them will remind you what you’re working for in the long run and the quality of life you’re striving to provide them and the REAL importance they provide to you.

You’ll return to work refreshed and ready to rock! Everyone needs time off. You shouldn’t feel guilty about it. In fact, you’ll be a stronger performer and your business will benefit if you give yourself a break every once in a while. So, kick back, take a load off and come back revitalized! Your respective stakeholders (employees, managers, customers, vendors, etc.) will appreciate your renewed energy and improved ATTITUDE!
