My friend, colleague and fellow Georgetown coaching grad David Peck posted this excellent and timely piece about a leaders’ obligation to rest on his blog, The Recovering Leader this week. Excellent because it is a reminder that, as Tony Schwartz and Jim Loehr put it, we are well suited for sprints but often treat business as if it were a marathon with no finish line. Timely because I am taking that counsel and going on vacation. You will still receive a feed on “hump day” but other than that, I will be offline until 10 August.
So-When was the last time you truly went on holiday? (Remember, on holiday means that the “crackberry” mail is off, GPS is for finding the golf course, the mobile is for dinner reservations and someone else is minding the store!)
