I just booked my suite at the Ritz Carlton, Rose Hall, Jamaica, and if it’s anything remotely like what that picture is making it out to be, I know I’m in for a treat.
Now traveling is something I do often, even traveling to beautiful places in lavish surroundings…so why is this so special, then?
Well, it’s special because it is actually going to be a REAL vacation this time!
Meaning I will in fact NOT be attending the conference my company is going to be holding at the properties. No, this time I will just be hanging out at the resort, enjoying everything the place has to offer!
Why did I make this radical decision? Isn’t the education, the information they are going to be sharing at the conference valuable enough?
Absolutely it is. In fact, seeing the line up of the speakers, I know the information will be nothing less than transformational.
But it is also important – scratch that, it’s VITAL - not to keep yourself so busy that you can’t find the time to just ENJOY LIFE.
(And that’s something I know I need to learn to get better at! Lately, it’s really been back-to-back for me with events, travels, and trainings…last month I even had to fight a volcano to get out of Europe after conducting a workshop for my team there…phew…exhausting!)
So my dear friend Melanie, who also happens to be my personal assistant and who lives in Jamaica, is going to be picking me up at the airport, and then we will continue the short drive along the shore side, to the Ritz Carlton resort.
For the next six days we will be relaxing, sleeping, talking, filming, sunbathing, dining, shopping — in short, purely and completely enjoying ourselves.
No to-do list, no meetings, no team trainings, no phone calls, no appointments.
Now…we will of course be talking marketing, sharing ideas, and masterminding as we’ll be mingling with the other marketing consultants at the conference. In fact, we even plan to hold a party – perhaps more than one – in our suite, for any friends and downline members of mine who would like to hang out with us after conference sessions.
And if I know Melanie and myself right, we’ll be like two school girls at a sleepover, giggling in the dark, unable to get any shut-eye because we just have so much to talk about. Marketing and otherwise.
What a BLAST it is going to be.
See, here’s what I’ve been telling myself lately: yes, it is fun to fly fast in your business but if the result is that you crash and burn, well, what good is it?
Better to slow down a little so that you can actually keep the momentum, and so that you can stay in the race for a long time.
We’re not machines, we’re humans.
So this time, while the rest of the group is in there listening to incredible speakers delivering life-changing information, I will be laying at the pool working on my tan, trying NOT to feel guilty about it.
Wish me luck. Something tells me I’ll need it. ;)
