I Brake for Breaks

Brake-pedal I admit it.  I'm a blogospheric slacker.

This is the longest break I've ever taken from blogging.  To be honest with you, my readers, I just haven't had it in me the past couple of weeks.  The reality is that I've had a couple of family issues to attend to, and my priorities shifted for a bit.

But in my mind (and hopefully in yours), it's OK to walk away and take a breather.  It's just important to come back.

In my creativity class, we talk about the importance of 'think time" - just building in time to contemplate.

In my leadership class, I cover the importance of priorities and flexible focus.

With my project management clients, I emphasize contingency time for those "what if" scenarios.

So I guess I have just been practicing what I preach.

And I found out that an bit of a break can be one darn fine accomplishment.

Thanks for your patience.  I'm back in the saddle.

Tim - Completely understood my friend. I hope you and yours are well and your break allowed you load up your analogies. I look forward to reading on.

Thanks Pete. I just received an email from one of my police buddies who was about to send the SWAT team crashing through my door to make sure I was OK... so I've learned that there are people out there reading this stuff. :) Things are calming down.


Blog have good entry of break. I like these entries is lovely and beautiful.

Ms. Admin

Life has taught me that without "me" time, I'm not a very likeable person (you could ask my childen if you need to verify). The greatest teacher made time to meditate and pray--to center himself--to be away from others. What makes us believe we should not do likewise? Keep encouraging your students to focus, center, follow-through, to have "me" time, but to always come back. I'm very proud of you for many reasons.
