Taking time out

Longhurst - Silverstone

You will often hear me talking about the importance of practicing what you preach. It’s important right?

If you’re positioning yourself as an authority in your chosen field you have to be able to stand up and demonstrate that you lead by example. If not, are you really the authority you think you are?

At Longhurst, we practice what we preach. Having come to the end of a very busy, and very successful, end of tax year period for our clients, my wonderful Louise whizzed me away to the Norfolk coastline for some downtime and some much needed R&R.

Newly adopted dog in tow, who himself was seeing the sea for the very first time, we really enjoyed our little trip away. Lots of walks. A few runs on the beach (with Bear). And time away from emails and my phone.

Why write this blog? The truth is that we all struggle from time to time to focus on what matters most. In part because we’re caught up with work. And in part because life takes over and we forget to take some time out.

It’s important that we remember life is for living, and we must create time for our loved ones, and for ourselves. Otherwise, what’s the point?!

I’ve come back to the office refreshed and focused on what will become a productive and successful 2019/20 financial planning season for our clients and households.
