One Week Free

I had one week free of work. That means obviously my normal work, but as well my MBA studies. What happened during that time?

  • I wasn’t really relaxed.
  • I didn’t really know what to do. I wasn’t bored. It was more like: I should have used the time better.
  • I didn’t understand how to focus on me and my needs (body & soul needs)


  • I had time for myself. Even not knowing what would be best I did what I wanted to do.
  • I had time to waste without thinking what I should do.
  • My partner showed me all her love by not demanding anything.

What can I learn from this experiment?

  • It takes time to calm down.
  • It’s not easy to fill time if you hardly had any time before.
  • It’s good to discuss your situation with somebody who cares.
  • My body needs some action. The trip to the Cotswolds was great.

Implications for next time?

  • Expect less
  • Go away, so you can’t do anything and you don’t even realise that you don’t have anything meaningful to do. But do it like my friend Nick. 2 weeks Disneyland. There is hardly anything to do.
  • Have a good book.
  • Book stores are always great.
  • Enjoy the small things in life.
  • Do some physical exercises: walking, cycling, swimming, running.
