I have spent the last few weeks living out of a suitcase and seemingly doing nothing at the weekend apart from washing, ironing and preparing for the next week away. It’s a double-edged sword. I like visiting different offices, every team, every business unit is different and has their own people dynamics and it is this variety that keeps me enthused and passionate about my job. But, everyone needs a break and after a few weeks of being constantly on the move I have come to see my big sister and her family who live on the East Coast for some quality R&R.
After only a few hours I already feel more relaxed, at ease and at peace.
Perhaps I need to do this more often.
