In case you did not know, The Colonel "Goes Fishing" on a beach in the Caribbean primarily to refresh, practice digital detox for a few days, and spend time focusing on the simpler things that surround us all.
Agreed...everyone has different perspectives and expectations of what their vacation should be, from filled with activities, to still being connected to a myriad of technology. Observing the diversity of how folks "enjoy" their vacation is to catch a glimpse into the human psyche.
If you are in the auto business at the retail level, observing the human psyche on vacation is an interesting pass time that also provides insight as to how the same humans will be in a showroom, or on their digital due diligence to purchase a vehicle.
Why you need to refresh?
We are so immersed in our routines that we lose sight of the depth of our immersion, or we know but don't want to know.
If you go on business trips its a change of scenery, while you bring all your "tools" to remain connected, immersed, available, and what ever else you want to call it.
As we are "connected" and empowered by technology, we are also disconnected with the humans that surround us. We are connected with them, while being disconnected on the human side.
When you refresh make an effort to connect on the human side, to be empathetic.
