Getting Disconnected

October 27, 2019

 

I have always imagined the day when I could get completely disconnected from technology --- even if for just a few hours. 

 

Magical.

 

I would just not worry about things. 

 

I could let it all go. 

 

I felt like it would never happen. 

 

Over time, I learned that I am not needed in all situations. I don’t have to know everything about everything going on in my business life. I learned that a good leader needs to trust others, and trust that the process is working.

 

But, STILL --- Getting completely disconnected for an extended amount of time sounded both wonderful and scary.

And- I did it. I turned off my phone and got completely disconnected for 7+ days. 

 

I was in the wilderness of Alaska --- literally! Miles and miles away from the nearest cell tower. 

 

No email.

 

No text.

 

No internet. 

 

No TV. 

 

No Radio. 

 

NOTHING!

 

And guess what?

 

I survived. Weirdly enough, so did everyone else. 

Projects didn’t fall apart.

 

People didn’t go off the rails and make decisions that would ruin my clients’ businesses. 

 

I have to admit that I did think about checking email for about one day but then, somehow, I completely forgot about it. 

 

It wasn’t until about day 6 that I realized I hadn’t even thought about checking my email or text for, at least 4-5 days. 

 

My brain felt better. My eyes didn’t feel tired. 

 

I was completely and totally absorbed in just enjoying the place. Being a part of the experience, instead of looking at it on my iPhone, and more importantly enjoying time with good people.  

 

It was, indeed, magical.

 

I cannot wait until next time.
