Hello friends — I am back from Spain (36°C) to the glorious English summer of clouds and rain. Certainly I am very, very rested and relaxed. I did no work except on the first two days, and for the majority of the holiday I didn’t even know what time it was as my watch and phone were out of sight!
Getting perspective, getting away and seeing things with fresh eyes, is a wonderful byproduct of a holiday. I find that month-on-month, we add things into our life that often are very unproductive, but we take them on because they demand our attention, and we get into the tradition of doing things for the sake of doing them. Many times we don’t even see this happen.
Or we find we are putting disproportionate amounts of time into the things that don’t yield the return that we should be putting more time into.
What I’ve found is that because a holiday STOPS you doing the little things like this, you are forced to reconsider what the priorities are.

- I’m keen to know how you get perspective and how you find holidays help you.
