One year I decided travel around Australia and New Zealand for 3 weeks with my girlfriend and probably lost out on one days work. I dived the great barrier reef, climbed the Sydney Harbour bridge, sunbathed on Bondi beach, bungee jumped and went canyoning as well as making some wicked friends and drinking a hell of a lot of beer. Being self employed means I’m accountable to myself and my clients only. I don’t work a 9-5 Monday to Friday. I don’t have a boss breathing down my neck to hit targets or to work late. It’s all self managed and it’s the best way I work.
But in order to gibe your brain chance to innovate and come up with new, fresh ideas it's good to relax and make the most of the gaps between work.
I discuss some of the things I like to get up to including:
- Doing to the gym
- Updating your website
- Visting the cinema at 11am
