I hadn’t taken any time off (outside of sick time) this year, so I gave myself three days off earlier this week and enjoyed a 5-day weekend. I’d like to tell you I went on a hike and cleaned my baseboards like I’d planned to do, but I honestly just stayed in bed and binged HBO’s The Gilded Age.
I have no regrets.
Within the next week or so, I want to revisit my annual goals and make sure I set some Q2 benchmarks. But, I needed to give myself permission to clear my mind first. This year hasn’t turned out anything like I expected career-wise. It’s been a necessary challenge, especially as an overly-ambitious self-employed person, to learn to be comfortable with just doing “okay” professionally.
