Taking some time off from work and routine is important, that’s because you are able to see what you are doing from a different prospective. Being able to do so gives you the opportunity to look at every action or process you are pursuing and spotting the strong and the weak points of your personal strategy.
I think that in some way its sad to see your life as the result of a strategy, but sometimes that’s all matters. Planning well the steps ahead, can give you the opportunity to reduce the risks of failures and optimize your efforts in what really matters. Time and energy are limited, so there is no need to waste them.
Sum of the previous sentences, those days away from the traffic gave me the opportunity to taste my father special shrimps, and to give myself some time to tune up strategies 🙂
