Three months ago, I went away for my first ever Personal Quarterly Offsite and found it extremely beneficial so I made a commitment to myself to continue doing it every 90 days or so.
I recently returned from my latest personal getaway and received some new insights, which I believe will help me close out this year on a good note. One thing I kept the same as my last getaway was I went away for two nights and returned home on a Sunday.
The things I did differently this time included:
- Chose a better location which allowed me to feel a lot more relaxed and comfortable.
- Paid more attention to what I ate while I was away.
- Maintained my rituals or routines which included doing something physical each day.
In the weeks leading up to my getaway, I really felt I needed a break because I had been juggling many priorities and trying to keep on top on things. Needless to say, it had been a struggle so having some time away was just what I needed.
