You know how in an airplane we are always told to put air masks on ourselves first if the plane loses pressure? Well it is the same in your business. We must take care of ourselves so that we can take care of those around us. So many people rely on us as the business owner…..our team, our suppliers, our vendors and last but not least, our family and their families.
Please take time off this holiday season, real time off with no email or cell phones or text. We owe it to ourselves and the people who rely on us to recharge and refresh ourselves.
Yesterday I had a tax planning meeting with a successful business owner who was telling me about an annual checkup with his doctor that ended him up in the ER with elevated blood pressure. The check up may have saved his life. So many people rely on him every day. He has a responsibility to now follow doctors orders and stay healthy.
What are you doing to protect your health to protect those around you? Take a vacation, doctors orders!
