Space to Create

Space to Create
As most of you know I was in the UK this month for work and of course more than a little furk. It was a great reminder for me how wonderful it is to have time away from your business to reflect and review.

I love my work so much that I often find it very hard to stop and take a break, I really have to force myself. What’s great about this time of year is that we are forced to stop. Over Christmas and New Year most places shut up shop and it’s a time to be with your family and stop all the busyness and craziness of the build up towards the end of the year. This forced time off is a great refresher as we prepare to start the year ahead and often I have found that in the space, I have been able to have room to think. The space has allowed me to create and innovate, to think, reflect and plan...

As I said last month we don’t want to be taking 3 month’s off but I think a week or two every 6 months is a great thing to allow you time to get off the high speed ride and ask yourself some questions. Like:

what do I really want in the year ahead
where do I want to go in 2010
who do I want with me on the journey

I find it allows me time to get re-inspired about my goals and reflect on where I am heading. To get excited and have a renewed passion. Once I start I can't stop, ideas just flow. I encourage you to use this time as the year winds down  to ask yourself these question and allow the space to create your dreams for 2010.
