How to Take More Time Off

I don’t know about you, but as a business owner I find it really hard to take time off. The whole “making my own schedule” thing doesn’t mean I don’t prioritize our clients’ businesses over my own freedom. The trick to solving this, of course, is to have the right systems and team in place keep things running when I’m gone.
The funny thing is, even though I’ve got systems and teams now, I still noticed how anxious I get at the thought of going away.
So the last few months, I’ve been considering what it is that I ACTUALLY think will go wrong if I disconnect for a couple days or (gasp!) more. And I used what I learned to create a new checklist to thoroughly cover all the bases before I go.
You can see what I came up with below. Yours will vary depending on what you do and how you work, but anyone can use the same concept to create a little more space in their lives. And the anxious ones among us can have a little bit better time on their vacations
I’ll be out of the office, actually disconnecting, with limited or no access to E-Mail and Phone from [start date to end date].
