I just finished a fabulous “private writing retreat” at the Washington Duke Inn, the elegant hotel that is also the location of our EXCEL business-building and marketing event in November. I needed some time alone- away from our children, my lovely spouse, emails, phone calls, business requests, family obligations etc. (you get the picture:)
I was able to write content for EXCEL, including our brand NEW “12 Habits of Highly Effective Entrepreneurs” which I will reveal at EXCEL and I LOVE. They are the habits of how to be REALLY successful in business – based on tons of research, as well as the business experience of ourselves over the past 18 years, of our clients, and of our mentors. It’s tremendous- and it wouldn’t be in existence, truly, if I hadn’t carved out the 24 hours of complete silence to unlock my brainpower and creative juices.
There is NOTHING like departing from your daily environment and routines to get the BIG stuff accomplished. I also returned to “the daily routines” with renewed energy and excitement- which leads to more joy in business and in life.
This is why we recommend personal, private retreats to our clients and we always include retreats in our Platinum and Diamond coaching programs. They are not “private” but they are a separation from the daily grind and a catalyst for much BIGGER thinking.
