A few months back, I had this crazy idea to take a work sabbatical.
I was feeling burnt out, uninspired and a little lackluster about the direction of my business. I knew I needed to take a break and recharge my batteries.
I asked a few friends about taking a break from work and they didn’t understand it. I think that’s true with most people. We live in a “hustle” culture, especially us entrepreneurs, that doesn’t align with taking a break to recharge the battery. We are told to work and work until you reach your goal.
But, our goals are always being revamped and pushed farther away. So, when are we supposed to take a break? How are we supposed to show up and serve well if we’re running on Empty?
Like a good blogger I went looking for information from other bloggers who had taken a work sabbatical and the only blog posts I could find had to do with maternity leave.
I was shocked that the only acceptable break we could take had to do with one of the most significant life changes a person can go through.
I decided right there that I was going to take a break, figure out my own plan and share it here with all of you.
It didn’t go as planned and it was definitely a trial and error experiment, but today I’m going to share with you what I did to prepare, what worked (and what didn’t) and what I did with my time away from my business.
Let’s get into it.
