In this episode, we’ll be discussing the importance of recharging your body and your mind, and how it can actually help you achieve your goals. Lorie and I will also be sharing some of our views on what the right modes of rejuvenation are—and how you can use them to produce better results.
What’s In-Store for You:
In order to succeed, we need to allow ourselves to rejuvenate. This is essential.
The body is like an engine. Once in a while, it will need tune-ups and tweaking. If we fail to give it the rest it needs, it will eventually break down. When that happens, our creativity begins to dwindle—and great possibilities are abruptly stopped.
Take note though: Rest and recharging is not just about taking a vacation or relaxing. It’s actually more than that.
In order to reap more benefits, you need to use your “rest and recharge time” as a tool for creating balance in your life. Merely vacationing or relaxing (without the proper mind set) is just taking time off. Unfortunately to me, that is just a big waste of time.
So, the question now is: How can we use this time to open up new opportunities and make our personal and professional lives better?
When resting and recharging, you will need to be focused. Keep free from distractions. “Desensitize” yourself.
During this time, forget all about your problems and worries. Don’t think about work. “Focus on not being focused” (hope this makes sense).
The key here is to connect with your inner self. Once you are able to establish that connection—your creativity will start to grow, your thinking will be a lot clearer and you’ll be able to come up with new ideas that can actually make you better, both on a professional and personal level.
Lorie and I will be discussing more about this topic, and we’ll be sharing some strategies that can help make your rest and recharge time a more fruitful one.

The Examination Room
In the Examination Room, we’ll be discussing one of Albert Einstein’s quotes:
“If your head tells you one thing, and your heart tells you another, before you do anything, you should first decide whether you have a better head or a better heart.”
Personally, I think the only way to know if we have a better head or a better heart is if we start resting and recharging more. This will give us an objective view of things, allowing us to accurately “measure” the things we need (and what we need to do)—in order to maximize our full potential and our respective goals.
Of course, that’s just my personal view. Do you agree with me? Share your thoughts and opinions. I’d love to discuss them with you.
