If all goes to plan, I should be lying on a beach when you read this.

I can tend to be a bit of a workaholic, so to really take a break I need to physically go far away, and leave all devices and work behind.

After a few days of this, I tend to get bored, so while I resist the temptation to start checking emails and dealing with minutiae, I use the opportunity to get through a few business books.

If find the clarity of mind that you can from stepping away from work, combined with a little stimulus from the reading, can inspire some of my best ideas.

When I have a little more time, I’ll talk about some of my favourite books, but for now I’m just going to enjoy the sun.
