Episode 13 [BONUS] Why I Took a 2-Hour Lunch - and the Case for White Space in Your Calendar

I took the day off on Wednesday. 

See, this is my birthday week, and I like to do something special if I can. So I spent the day in my favorite way, huffing along through the woods with my boots and my stick, on a rocky, beautiful, high-up trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Could I have used that day to work on the podcast?  Of course I could.

Could I have scheduled clients instead? Served them well? Made some money? Of course I could.

But I have always been a firm believer that one of the main reasons I ever started a business to begin with, was so that I had control over my time, and the freedom to TAKE time when I wanted to.

I work hard - always have - but that doesn’t mean I work 24/7.

And neither should you. 

I thought about you a lot while I hiked.  On a Wednesday.  So much in fact that I decided to create this little bonus episode for you all - and I have a suggestion.

Do yourself a favor: take an actual lunch break.

Just listening to this episode gives you plenty of time to have a bite, catch your breath, maybe take a quick walk or a big stretch, and THEN settle back in to an afternoon of business building, client serving, impact making.

You need that, my friend.


P.S. Did this episode make you think differently about how you schedule your time?

If  so - good! Then I've achieved my goal!  And if you would be so kind, please take 2 minutes to share a 5 star review and maybe a few words over on Apple Podcasts. Use the link below to get to there. Then, just scroll down to the bottom of the podcast page and you'll see "Write a Review" on the LEFT just above the "About" section.


Your support means more than you can imagine, and helps us get discovered by others who could use this kind of help. Thank you!  🙏
