Take a Break

Link: The Heart of Innovation.


I believe this is the longest hiatus I’ve ever taken from my blog; if you’ve wondered where I’ve been, I just got back from a marvelous vacation. I spent a week in Barbados with my daughter: lying on the beach; drinking far more than is my usual wont; eating fresh seafood — basically lazing around. And the internet connection was iffy at best, which I took as the universe’s way of telling me to chill out. Here’s a pic of the beach that was about a two minute-walk from our wonderful guesthouse.

So, here I am again, recharged and ready to go. One of the things I wanted to do when I got back to blogging was introduce you to my friend Mitch Ditkoff’s blog. And lo and behold, his latest post is about the importance of taking breaks. Serendipity.

Mitch calls himself the Archduke of Idea Champions, his own company, which he describes as:

a consulting and training company dedicated to awakening and nurturing the spirit of innovation. We help individuals, teams and entire organizations tap into their innate ability to create, develop and implement ideas that make a difference.

I encourage you to explore his blog: Mitch is a wonderful person, an endless font of interesting and worthwhile ideas, an untiring supporter of others’ ideas, and the author of the newly published book, Awake at the Wheel.
