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.

The Secret to Productivity: Get Up Early (or Stay Up Late) | Personal Branding Blog - Dan Schawbel

The Secret to Productivity: Get Up Early (or Stay Up Late) | Personal Branding Blog - Dan Schawbel | Business Improvement | Scoop.it
The articles that say you MUST get up early (or stay up late) to be productive are wildly incorrect. You need to pick the schedule that works for you, not them.
taniaATenthuse.me's insight:

Finding what works for you best and being able to implement it on your daily routine is what will skyrocket your productivity levels! Not everyone is the same and there is no given time of the day that people tend to be more productive. It all comes down to the individual. 
In case of a freelancer, pick what works for you and stick to it. In case of professionals going for the 9-5 traditional jobs, try to find a time during your 8 hours stay at the office that works best for you and do the hardest and most demanding tasks then.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 24, 2013 1:51 PM

These tips can be summed up by pointing out that great leaders realize that they must continually improve. Consequently, they must remain open to others and new perspectives while continuing to clearly convey in words and actions what they value and believe to be important for the future of their business. 

taniaATenthuse.me's comment, July 25, 2013 2:01 AM
That is so true Frank. True leaders are role models and should always seek improvements to benefit themselves as well as the people they lead.
