The title of the post sounds like a pair of contrasting statements. Contrast is the key and the intent of the statement!
How do you step away and dive in? Take yourself AWAY for a day. If you want to make progress in a particular area, separate yourself from your familiar world – lock yourself away and spend a solid day, dawn to dusk, writing out a plan or getting a start on what needs to be done in order for you to succeed. It’s a great investment in yourself!
Take the early train to into the city or Travel to a small town far enough away that you won’t know the people you encounter. I have found that a day spent at a coffee shop, a community or university library or a large hotel lobby offer anonymity and privacy with a low price tag. Of course, an overnight at a luxury hotel with a great rate on Living Social or Groupon can be a delicious choice.
As always, I welcome your thoughts on the topic and make it a great week!
