I debated for months

I debated for months.

Take time off during the holidays, or use the time to work?

I encourage my team to take days off.

I know it’s good for their long-term productivity and engagement.

But for me?

I am the business owner.

Entrepreneurs need to hustle, right?

I’ll take time off after I reach certain milestones.

Enjoyment will come then.

Business slows down for us over the holidays.

During the slowdown, I can catch up on projects.

I can use the time for planning.

How great would it be to start the year with a completed to-do list?

And after months of back and forth, I decided.

I am staying put.

I was content with the decision… I thought.

But shortly before the holidays, I received a call.

My uncle passed.

It was sudden and a shock.

He retired just months before.

For years he spoke of how he was looking forward to retirement.

He had plans to get an RV and travel.

Now, he was gone.

It put things into perspective.

Yes, time off will help with productivity and creativity.

But beyond that, life’s unpredictable.

We need to enjoy it while we can.

I love what I do for work.

But I love the sun, the beach, and spicy margaritas more.

So I booked a trip.

I realize I need to stop waiting for the right time.

Because time isn’t waiting for me.

Stop Waiting For The Time, Time Isn't Waiting For You
