It can make it a challenge to spend all day at a conference rather than at your desk. The thought of work not done, meetings missed and emails gone unanswered can be daunting.
That said, it is important and necessary to step back from the fray once in awhile. While work is a priority, it is also healthy to gain new perspective, explore new ideas and meet new people. It keeps you interested, inspired and fresh.
When you come to a conference such as meshmarketing, don’t think of it as time away from the office. Instead, look at it as an opportunity to expand your personal and professional horizons and take your business in a new or different direction.
It could be the speakers (and we have a great lineup of digital marketers such as Jay Baer and Peep Laja), it could be the person sitting next to you, or someone you meet during a break in the action.
It’s magical is when something new presents itself; something big or small that can make the entire day valuable and worthwhile.
Getting out of the office – be it attending a conference, having lunch or taking a walk – gives you perspective and opens window to the unexpected.
