Do You Need a Recess?

In Lessons Learned on June 7, 2009 at 2:45 pm


When I decided to create time for my personal endeavors, it was a simple idea.  However it quickly evolved in more than that.  We started to create a branded movement entitled 7Day Recess.  The nucleus of 7Day Recess is inspiring our generation to continue to dream, invest in themselves, and realize their potential.  This hopefully will equate to a more satisfied and purposeful existence for the millennial generation.

Sounds crazy but as I told more and more people, our conversations seemed to unveil their secret passion/hobby/dream/interest/venture that has disintegrated away from their ambitious grips.  Stories popped up about designing posters in college, writing and performing poetry in their hometown, dreaming of launching an online jewelry store, reevaluating their career path, or just wanting to start over.   These were the responses from the decreasing class of the employed.

The unemployed had a slightly varied sentiment based on their abundance of time.  Most loved the idea because it provided focus and structure for their new found schedules.  Many were currently traveling, enjoying their time, looking for new jobs, and simply just worrying about the future.  Some were re-evaluating themselves.  Overall, no one had a strategy or focus for how to spend their time wisely.

After all these conversations, we realized the 7Day Recess was about creating time and leveraging the potential of that time.  So if you can’t find time or have too much time, consider creating some time that is dedicated to you.  It doesn’t have to be a month…choose a week.  It doesnt have to be July…choose the best timing.  Just don’t let time steal your dreams.
