Recharge the Batteries

To be honest I had a difficult couple of weeks and I needed to take the time to unwind (buy me a coffee if you want the details). It was probably the first time in over three years in the public service where I took time off for the express purpose of simply recharging my batteries.

I took two days off this week and spent the time doing things I wanted to do. I created some nifty visualizations of the Digital Economy consultation paper, went for a run, had lunch with my dad, spoke at an event, taught a course, and wrote this simple blog post.

How often do you take the time to recharge?

What do you do?

I'm certainly going to start doing it more often and I'm interested in how it's done; I'm learning just how important it can be.
