Work Life Balance
There is a balancing act that only becomes apparent in high growth individuals. It's there in everybody, but when you put yourself or your business into hyperdrive, it becomes far more apparent. Understanding how to control this balance, separates those who succeed from those who seem to struggle to grow.
The CEO Vacation To Clear Your Head
and Boost Productivity
True Success Comes After You Break Away…
A few days ago, I told you about a time that I was struggling through life…
Struggling to be successful – and working way too hard.
Struggling in my relationships.
…and struggling to keep myself in shape.
My life was clogged.
I worked over 80 plus hours each week, and I had no time or desire to do anything at the end of the day – let alone exercise!
Then I took a vacation that changed the course of my life – and within 30 days everything changed.
My finances got better – way better!
My body fat dropped – to 5%!
My relationships got better – in fact I married an amazing woman.
Now I take a vacation like this every year, and I highly suggest that everyone takes this kind of a vacation at least once in your life.
Here’s the basic game plan:
First – I choose a location that puts me in beautiful, natural surroundings – but in solitude.
For example – my first personal vacation was in Sedona Arizona – in the red rock mountains, the following year I went to a secluded part of an island…
What I’m looking for is a place that I can physically exhaust myself, be alone, and clear my head.
So when I was in Sedona, I woke up early each day, chose a different mountain from the landscape – hiked to the mountain, then hiked up the mountain…
…which would take hours and get me physically exhausted.
Then when I was at the top of the mountain, all by myself – I would stare out into the dessert until my head was clear.
Now that might not work on the first 2-3 days!
…but there’s always a breakthrough when you do this – when your mind become uncluttered, and your life become clear.
At that point – I take out a pen and paper from my back pocket and write down 1 goal in each main category of my life that I am committed to achieving over the coming months.
…and here’s the key distinction that makes this really work:
For the next few days – after choosing a different mountain, hiking to the top of that mountain – then clearing my head – when I pulled out the paper – I would then create a detailed plan to achieve each of those goals.
When you do this – you’ll get completely different results than past attempts at goal setting, because your head is now clear!
Big big difference!
Personally – I take a similar vacation every year now – and each time I get back I experience more growth in my life.
…more growth than most people experience in a lifetime.
Here’s what I mean…
Most people dream of writing a book – I’ve written 7 – one of which became an international bestseller.
Most people dream of being in shape – now I’m in shape 7 days per week, 365 days per year – with less effort than most fitness guru’s.
Most people WANT to help others – I’ve built four companies that touch the lives of millions each year.
Every day we do a few things that either draw us closer to our goal or anchor us down to staleness in our lives.
These personal vacations are a tool that I use, and that I teach my personal clients to use, to accelerate our results, and finally become clear on what path to take.
If you can’t break away for 7 days, then break away for 4 days.
If you can’t break away for 4 days, then break away for 2 days.
Get the idea?
Just break away, and do something to physically and mentally become clear – then take action, and watch as your world transforms.
