Traveling, how great could it be if we could spend most of our lives traveling the world, seeing all the Seven wonders, trying foods from all corners of the globe. Today I’m going to talk about how traveling to Japan helped me refocus. But before we jump into that or anything else, I want to highlight a few important things. I think in society and generally in life we take shame on someone wanting to take a break for any reason. We make it seem like that person is lazy and doesn’t work hard enough, or they always want to party and have fun. After reading this article you are going to learn why traveling can actually help your business more than you think.
One of the first things that might have come to your mind after reading the first paragraph is why is traveling so important, and what does this have to do with my business. Well, traveling is important in many facets as we can see with the current circumstance of things right now. I see traveling as a way to immerse yourself in the world around you. To learn about your fellow people and widen the vision of what you see around you. It’s necessary as a human being, but also as a business owner to have a vision, to be able to think ahead of the curve, to understand your customers and what their needs are and how those needs can be met. When you travel it broadens this knowledge in that you see how other people use their creativity or how businesses are practiced in other countries. What you can do with that knowledge is boundless, you can now allow that new knowledge to your own practice.
Another very important reason why traveling is so necessary, is because to simply put it, it’s ok to take time and focus on yourself. Too often in our world, we look at taking a break or time away as being complacent and lazy. But in reality taking a break can allow you to refuel and gain that creativity and motivation back. Think of the saying “Take one step back to take two steps forward”. Now look at it like this, Take a trip around the world and the steps that you can take are infinite. Most business owners also wear multiple hats, you are the operations person, marketing person, finance/accounting person even taking a few days off from your daily grind as an entrepreneur can increase your productivity ten-fold.
Think about things like this, you’re working on your business day-in and day-out you start feeling exhausted, what happens next? You start to become unproductive and your business suffers a little bit because of it. Or you constantly sit in front of a computer screen and you think you are being productive, but are you really? Taking a moment or two to travel because why not, can be very beneficial as traveling helps our business in so many ways.
Never take the power of traveling for granted, don’t look at traveling as being lazy or unproductive, look at it in the opposite light as being the bridge that leads to growth both mentally, financially, and also building cultural awareness and placing ourselves in the world around us. So, to finish things off we just want to say travel as much as you can, you never know where it might lead you.
