      Break Down to Built Up

      A break can be the thing you need to take your work to the next level.

      This weekend, I had the blessing of spending a few days away with some good friends. For the most part, we were without cell service which meant we were disconnected from the internet, from the notifications, and from the tendency to respond to every message we received (because we didn’t receive any messages).

      This was exactly what I needed.

      I sat around. I took a few long walks. I read. I fished. I enjoyed great food and fantastic conversation.

      As I shut down for the evening, I know I’ll be climbing back into the “connected” world tomorrow. I believe my time away is just what I needed to take the things I’m working on to the next level, and I’m excited.

      When was the last time you took a break? What benefits did you receive as a result of getting away? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
