One of my learnings from last year (which I finally typed up!) was that without true rest and replenishment at least one day per week, I will run aground. And so will you. And when you are aground, you aren’t growing forward. You are stuck, paralyzed.  You are burned out.

I’m getting more and more requests this year for my seminar on Burning Bright without Burning Out, and I think it’s because it’s something we all know we need to work on.  We have to stay out of the red zone, with all our gauges running hot. Please: take time to unplug, pull back, do something fun, embrace your relationships–and enforce personal boundaries so you stay in the water, not dead in the water!

If you need more tips on how to do these things, let me know. Also, let me know if you want to receive via email, my newsletter Target Practice, for helpful reminders for Growing Forward.
