Take a Break

Business Model Mind Set

Summertime is here and accountants everywhere are starting to take well deserved holiday time.

But when you’re taking time away from the office are you really giving yourself a break…

…or are you just changing where you’re working from?

It took me awhile to figure it out.

When I did it changed who I was when I returned back to the office.

    Hi Erik,

    I just want to jump into the water behind you with a snorkel and watch the fishies down there. Great advice.

      Thanks Andrew. I don’t think you’d like the temperature of the water here on the west coast though. It’s COLD! Beautiful to look at but I wouldn’t advise jumping in!

    Thanks for the direct reminder. Two people said the word “BurnOut” to me this week, so I promptly went to the schedule book and the secretary and blocked out two weeks, one now and one at the end of August. We are also going to do some revising of my daily schedule next week. I appreciate your direction.

      Good for you Theresa. You definitely deserve some holiday time. Make sure you turn off all your electronic devices when you do!
