I didn’t get all my work ‘done’ before my official holiday kick-off.
It’s happened before, but this time it’s different because rather than stressing out about it, I’m bringing a bit of writing work on holiday with me. And I reckon my relationship management skills are benefiting from the fresh energy from being out there.
Besides this, the stress of getting everything done in time was taking away from my joyful anticipation of a trip that I’ve been looking forward to for ages. Flipping the list has taken the pressure off.
“ Instead of starting my trip feeling exhausted and wrung out, I’m well rested and light-hearted.
In the past, I would have burned the way-past-midnight oil for days on end so that I could start the holidays with all the jobs ‘out of the way’.
But my itinerary has flex in it, so instead of working to the point of complete craziness, I’ve schlepped my laptop on the plane, found somewhere to set up shop, and jumped online for an extra day of work before the holiday proper starts.
And I’m so glad I did! Instead of starting my trip feeling exhausted and wrung out, I’m well rested and light-hearted. I’m online fromm a very funky Retro hotspot and it feels like the first time in ages that work has been fun and my peopel skils are oozing.

There’s groovy visions around me, I'm alive and it's a good vibe, friendly staff to chat to, and some fbulous people in my vision.
It’s made me remember that I can inject a bit of freshness and enthusiasm into my work whenever I like, just by shifting my desk to a dramatically different environment.

I’m often heard saying that one of the joys of soloism is that I can work from wherever in the world I like,but this is the first time I’ve done it willingly and with forward planning (as opposed to after begrudgingly acknowledging at the very last minute that there’s no way on earth I’ll be able to meet all my deadlines).
This feels like such a success that I think I’ll be taking working holidays on a regular basis.
My instinct is that it will be a great thing to do when I want to be particularly creative.
