After years of working too much and seeing people work too much, I’ve decided to take action. I created a startup getaway, The Blue House, on the shores of Morocco, where summer lasts all year.
Everybody agree it’s a great idea. People, especially in our over-worked industry, need to get away from their desk, take a step back, and hit the rest button once in a while.
And yet, my days are made of “Oh I wished I could come, but I can’t leave the office,” “Oh darn, it sounds cool, I have too much on my plate but I’ll keep it mind for later.”
But here’s the thing: if you don’t have time to come, then it’s exactly time to get away.
Our brain works like a computer. When we ask too much from our brain, it heats up and then shuts down.
