Going in the right direction is everything.
I've also learned there's no good time to take a break as I'm about to go to South Africa and London for a two week holiday. I don't think I've been busier than this past week with getting everything done before I go and ensuring all my client work is in shape.
When you work for yourself it's equally as important to take time to wind down. I know when I come back it will be full steam ahead but I've learnt that there's no good time to take a break. There's always something to do, someone to see, work to be done.
