Robin Sharma's '5 AM Club' was my favorite book of 2019. It is similar to Bob Burg's 'The Go-Giver', where a narrative includes lessons to live by.
One of those lessons in Mr. Sharma's book being 'allow your life to happen in seasons.'
In the '5 AM Club,' he gives an example describing trees. Their annual rhythm of losing then blossoming their leaves. They do not resist the seasons. They willingly go through them.
We can do the same.
We grind ourselves down with the same busy schedule all year long. Only to take a week(or two)of vacation to recuperate, reflect, or slow down? One to two weeks, that's it.
I'm writing this during winter 2020. This season I won't feel guilty about staying in and enjoying great food, TV, books, video games. I often travel during this time, as booking trips are less expensive.
In the spring, there will be outdoor activity. But with all the rain, this opens time to meditate, create, plan for the coming months.
The summer and fall are full of experiences, movies, dancing, keeping me occupied until the end of the year, only for the cycle to repeat.
Don't fight the seasons. Relish them. There's a time to go slow and a time to go fast.
