However hard you work and however short the time that you can be away from your business, it is important every now and again to take a step out of your business. Looking back into your business from the outside gives you the opportunity to re-assess your direction of travel, your systems and people. You need that space, and this time of year is the perfect time to give yourself permission to wind down. In all probability, no one else wants to talk to you about business anyway, especially on Christmas Day.
So, sleep late, eat too much, eat all the wrong things, and thoroughly chill out for a few hours or days. Your business will thank you for it in the weeks and months to come.
