What I enjoy most about any holiday is the chance to truly feed my brain. Instead of simply keeping up with all the many details and the frantic pace of life and business today, I allow myself a chance to feed my brain. This means that I catch up on industry reading, take the time to listen to the latest in personal development CDs and MP3s, and enjoy a novel or book of short stories. This serves to open my mind to new ways of thinking, refreshes my outlook and perspective, and reminds me that there is far more to life than the doing we are all obsessed with and taking time to be is a way to feed my brain.
After all, if you don’t feed your brain but simply keep it on a diet of work in and work out, you will find your mental capacity diminishing rather than growing. What we read is easily as important as what we listen to (a diet of educational CDs will result in far greater benefit than a menu of nothing but rock and roll or even jazz, unless you are a musician!) We are only able to produce based on what we take in, too often it is very limited and limiting. Go beyond your own mental backyard and explore new technology, alternative viewpoints, different philosophies, and the latest trends. Sometimes we just need to be jogged by something we read or hear to make giant strides forward. Feed your brain, increase your wisdom.
