Although consistency in business is the secret to all success, so is creativity and knowing yourself and also not getting burnt out.

So when I traveled to Costa Rica on my off-the-grid one week vacation, I decided to also have a break from podcasting, and let myself cut loose of everything.

For a full week, no internet, no electricity and no hot water.

What does being off the grid mean? Technically, it means no outside infrastructural support.


So my husband and I were deep in the Costa Rican jungle, living in a tree house, hiking, watching the monkeys, insects, birds and other animals, while just staring out over the tree canopy to the ocean.
We also read a lot, hiked in the jungle and along the beach, saw many exotic animals and butterflies, which particularly made my hubby smile.

But why is it so important to have this type of getaway? Isn’t it enough to go on vacation, change your routine, and see someplace new?


I don’t think so. I think it’s vital to go somewhere where you have no access to internet, or TV, or your emails. Where nobody can call you, and you can’t call them. Really just cut away for a few days.


The effect isn’t immediate. It takes time for your mind and body to adjust to the new pace, to be able to open your inner doors of creativity and thoughts. Once you’re there, you’ll know it. You’ll feel excited and invigorated, with no external stimulations.
You’ll feel satisfied and curious, all at once.

On today’s podcast I talk about my latest off-the-grid getaway to the Osa Peninsula and how I felt when I got back to my office.


I talk about preventing burnout, recharging, explosive creativity and reconnecting with my partner.


Giving myself the gift of no hot water, no internet, no lights for a week.
Priceless.
