Bigg Success is life on your own terms. The 5 elements of bigg success are money, time, growth, work and play. Today’s focus is play.
Bigg goal-getters work very hard to achieve their goals. It’s important to take time to rejuvenate yourself so you can keep making your bigg dreams come true.
If you can’t steal away for a day, steal away for an hour
One way to do that is to take a daycation – spend a day enjoying one of your favorite activities. Take in a ball game. Go for a hike. Enjoy a drive.
Sometimes you can't take an entire day away from work. Synergize – look for a way to fit in some fun with the work even if it’s just for an hour!
We find it therapeutic to be around bigg water. So after a few meetings recently in Chicago, we spent time walking along Lake Michigan before driving home.
Experience nature with all your senses
When you do stop to enjoy nature, use all of your senses to really take it in. Looking out, we could see almost nothing but water.
There was a sail boat on the horizon; a seagull bobbing on the waves.
We could hear the waves, coming into shore in rhythm and washing back out.
We could feel the breeze, the moisture in the air and the warmth of the sun. A splash from a wave hit our hands. It was cold!
Every once in a while, there was that fishy smell with which we’re all familiar. It’s a reminder of the life we can’t see beneath the surface.
As we breathed in the smell of the air, the taste in our mouth changed.
It was wonderful. It makes your problems seem insignificant when you experience a body of water as massive as this.
It's always hard to leave, but we were re-energized in a short time because we really took it all in with all of our senses.
Bigg goal-getters give their all to achieve their bigg dreams. But you have to take time to "stop and smell the roses" (or the fish) to keep pushing towards bigg success.
