We resist the term Career Break.
As guys who place a premium on crafting a life worth living, the idea of a break sort of falls flat.
Oftentimes a break is used as a staring point for further life changes, but – all too often – we meet people who really want a life overhaul and take a break in order to buy some time. Unfortunately, while on break, they forget about the life they’ll go back to and motivation to propel change drifts away. This leads to a boat load of despair upon return.
We say, if you need to make a change, look at the big picture right away. If you need to start with a career break, fine. Just don’t kid yourself into thinking you can take your foot off the gas when on your break.
Aim for a No Vacation Required life (yea, we're biased!), one in which you set yourself up for success for the long haul.
