Huatulco Health and Productivity Intensive Retreat

Huatulco Health and Productivity Intensive Retreat

January 31 – February 14, I spent two glorious weeks on a working vacation as a client intensive retreat in Huatulco, Mexico. Some people may think that is an oxymoron, but it worked well for me, my business didn’t suffer, I made money and had a ton of time for playing. I was at the Secrets Resort, which is gorgeous. The town is only 10,000 people so it isn’t touristy yet and is safe to visit and walk around.

By the time I got off the plane at almost 1:00pm EST, I felt like someone had taken a hammer to my head while there was a wild animal eating its way out of my stomach, and, of course, I was supposed to drive directly to work at a site visit with my manager.

If you went back to my elementary library you would find that I checked out books on Martha Washington, Susan B. Anthony, Abigail Adams, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Harriet Tubman repeatedly. I mean to the point I was asked to give the other kids a chance to read them.

Work Well to Play More With Friends!

Putting personal tasks like calling people or visiting friends on your list isn’t impersonal. I’ve been told by several of my friends that I’m really good at getting people together and maintaining relationships. That’s because it’s really important to me, but also because I actually make time for it. I make sure I see at least one friend socially every week.
