“A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in” Robert Orben
Today’s inspiration sounds great… doesn’t it?
Absolutely nothing to do and all day to do it! It’s that happy place you dream of… especially when you’re so busy doing EVERYTHING from shipping to talking to customers to making schedules. It’s crazy… busy… you don’t even have a moment to think. Except that one moment you had today to dream of that vacation where you have nothing to do and all day to do it.
But is that true?
Think back to your last vacation.
Did you have dinner reservations, ports of call, tours, shows, time at the parks, jogging, I mean you were actually busy. OH, but there was that time you spent at the pool in the sun with nothing to do. Well… you got up, had to make it to breakfast before it was over, get to the pool, find a chair, unpack your stuff, read a book, get up, bundle your stuff so you can swim, then you get out of the pool, lay down, read, pack your stuff, go to your room, rinse off the suntan lotion, all so you can get to your dinner reservation.
Now… you may say “YES” I’ll take that schedule right now… and that’s probably true. But how about integrating some of the best parts of your vacation into your daily life.
That gets you thinking… but I don’t have a pool?! Was it really the pool, or was it reading the book by the pool… was it watching your kids by the pool… the pool is the gathering spot or your destination, it’s just a thing. What is the “why” behind the pool event?
Focus on that. Focus on the why! Vacations are awesome. They are busy. Sometimes you get stressed. But they are a fantastic break in your year. You need this more often and it’s hard to get away. So why not make your ordinary day into a mini vacation?
It’s a silly little thought, but today, let your mind wander to the best part of your vacation. Discover “why” it was the best. Then add it to your today agenda!
Make today your perfect vacation!
