Build the recharge in upfront


A week at the beach with the children at the end of a long project has been a good reminder of the importance of taking time to recharge.  In the first month of the project, our team discussed the recovery plans - what good looked like included a successful delivery, exceeding expectations and then some time off before returning to the day jobs.  This became an asset to our team as we worked through a challenging project with extensive travel and time away from family.  The week at the beach for me to recharge became an incentive for the children and a reward for putting up with another flight, another night away from them.  As we slogged through the workload of the project, I became grateful I had booked the holiday upfront.  I would not have had time to sift through beach houses when we were in the thick of it.  Photos of the beach house became a touchstone through some late-night stints.. and when we arrived at the beach.. ah, the serenity.. #recharge #holidays #family #rest #projects #juggle
