As I write this, I’m on a plane bound for Kauai. Thank goodness. I’m not sure if I could have continued to be my “best self” without a vacation. Oh, who am I kidding? My best self has been in repose for at least a month now.
Nope, we couldn’t wait for the official Spring Break in late March… and yep, we took the kid out of school. Why does it have to be so difficult to leave town? I even muttered to my husband the night before last that getting away for a vacation is so wrought with stress that it almost makes me inclined to not ever take one! Well, not really.
Here’s the PR lesson: Sometimes it’s okay to take a break from creating content, getting in the news, or otherwise holding court with your assorted target audiences. Depending upon your PR programming, a little time away (not too much, mind you), will help your biggest fans realize that they missed you while you were away!
This Amico needs a break. When I come back, my best self will be energized and back at the helm. Until then…
Aloha, and mahalo.
