This pic is me on my 4th week of Vacation in a Corporate Job that only gave me 3… I took 5.5 weeks total that year because …
I am here to tell you that this IS possible for you too, however it takes a ton of mindset work, culture analysis and SMART work.
I always preach that you cannot pour from an empty cup. If you are burnt out, drained, exhausted, how are you supposed to operate at a high frequency? Instead, learn how to walk away from situations or conversations that are 1) Unproductive, 2) Draining, or 3) Provide no Value to you. Secondly, learn how to say NO. NO = The Single Most Empowering Word I have ever learned.
*Invitations have a decline button for a reason.
This includes how many hours you sit on the couch, at the dinner table, in bed on your email on your phone. These are CRUCIAL hours that add to burnout, but typically go “un-noted” as they are in a place of comfort.
It is super important to note that I said PRODUCTIVE hours. Productive Work-Blocks and Un-Productive Work-Blocks look very different.
For Example, my average client productivity zone is 1-2 hour Work Blocks, 2-3x a day. This means my typical client only seems 3-6hours of PRODUCTIVE work in a single work day. So why do we work 8-14 hour days?
Those who don’t automate, delegate or delete small or repetitive tasks are those who will never find true balance. Delegation is the Queen of work-life balance. Automation is the King of work-life Balance. And Deleting? Well heck, you do the math …..
For any one of my clients reading this you know I am C-R-A-Z-Y about setting boundaries for success and work-life balance. Boundaries are your best friend. Same goes for VACATION TIME … Since when did it become okay to WORK EVERY WAKING HOUR of your vacation. Your brain needs to relax and reset, or else you will live in a constant state of burnout.
