In one of my periodic sweeps to catch up on my Bloglines subscriptions, I stopped by Phil Gerbyshak’s “Make it Great!” blog today, and found a very insightful article on recharging your batteries. As I’ve written in the past, I’m one of those who really needs my “recharge time.”
Phil breaks this down into a formul of the “4 R’s.” They are: Rest, Reflect, Read, and Relax. These certainly resonate with me, and I realized that I’ve not taken enough time to Rest and Relax lately. I’ve been doing plenty of Reflecting and Reading, but just haven’t been making as many “a-ha” connections I usually do.
In other words, I’ve been working hard this week, but haven’t been getting the full benefit of that work because my batteries were a bit run down. This evening I feel more energized and creative.
After reading Phil’s post, I realize I'm reaping the benefits of spending all afternoon ice skating with two of my kids (the third went to Build-A-Bear with my wife).
So, check out what Phil has to say. And don’t forget to use all 4 of the R’s.
