Getting away from the normal routine will recharge your batteries and enable you to deal with your business challenges in a more effective way. You will unplug from your situation, see things from a different perspective and bring new ideas to deal with your problems.
Great advice by Eric Wagner that will help you avoid burnout and give you the chance to rejuvenate and refocus. Go for it :)

An interesting perspective on how to gain new insight and edge on your business... To step back, and remove yourself from it all so that you can spend time thinking about your business and innovative ways to get ahead.

Ashleigh Dawley's curator insight, August 27, 2013 3:28 PM

While vacation is nice get away from the normal grind of work it can have real benefits to not only your work ethic, but also what your "vision" of work is. I think that the point about how people get stuck working "in" their business that they forget to work "on" their business is really insightful and got me really thinking about myself and our families business.

Psychology for Marketers: 9 Revealing Principles of Human Behavior

Psychology for Marketers: 9 Revealing Principles of Human Behavior | Mental Health and Development | Scoop.it
Brush up on these 9 psychology principles to help improve the effectiveness of your marketing.


Digest...

 

1)      Reciprocity: Give away something -- for free -- to help build community or customer loyalty.

2)      Commitments: Though you should never stop trying to delight your customers (per principle #1), it’s important to keep in mind that the longer the commitment they make to you, the harder it could be for them to churn.

3)      Authority: Amp up your authority in your content by prominently featuring authors’ information alongside their blog posts, ebooks, whitepapers, or videos.

4)      Social Proof: One easy way to make the most of social proof is on your blog -- if you're not already, use social sharing and follow buttons that display the number of followers your accounts have or the number of shares a piece of content has.

5)      Liking: You just want people to feel positively affiliated with your brand. So however you make that happen, it's worth a try.

6)      Scarcity 

7)      Recency Illusion: This is important to keep in mind when you’re designing marketing campaigns -- you should be aiming to develop robust, integrated campaigns, not just a one-and-done piece of content.

8)      Verbatim Effect: you should try to pack as much relevant and descriptive information into your headline as you can.

9)      Clustering: Do the legwork for your audience: group similar topics in your writing together -- either under numbered bullet points or with different header sizes.

How Non-Violent Communication Can Change Your Life

How Non-Violent Communication Can Change Your Life | Mental Health and Development | Scoop.it

Non-violent communication (NVC) is about being empathic, not only with others but with yourself. It can radically change how you think about yourself (you get to know why you feel a certain way) and how you feel when people say something to you.

 

First, you have to know that we live in a world of jackals. This is the term used by Marshall Rosenberg, the father of non-violent communication. Jackals communicate violently because they don't know how to do it better. Your mother could be a jackal too (sorry):

 

"Son, you never care about me."

 

This is the jackal way of saying: "Son, I feel sad because you cannot come to see me every weekend. I need to be around my children more frequently."

 

The first comment makes you feel bad because your mother is judging you, and you can take it as an attack. The second one expresses facts, feelings and needs. You cannot argue over these, they only encourage you to resolve the conflict.
