Key Ideas

Modern Sabbaticals

Traditionally, a sabbatical is a period of paid or unpaid leave that is granted to an employee so that they may study or travel.

A modern sabbatical is no longer defined as the absence of work. It can be defined as an active pursuit of purpose.

Write a novel

You will have a lot of time on your hands to consider the creative ideas in your mind.

Write it down and self publish. Share your knowledge and your narrative with the world.

Start a side hustle

Do you have a skill that you would like to improve?

You could use your sabbatical to start a client base for consulting work and build your portfolio while making a profit.

Volunteer

There are many opportunities where you can use your specific skill set to impact the world. You could spend your time helping a worthy cause while learning about yourself and others along the way.

Seek Next-Level Education

A sabbatical may be the time to pursue a higher level of education. 

Don’t stop at traditional education avenues either - invest in e-courses, read more books, listen to podcasts (or start your own).

Set An “Unreachable” Goal

Set a goal that you would never have done because it would require too much time or effort.

The goal should make you feel like you’re growing and leave you feeling accomplished.

Get and stay physically calm

Start by counting to 100 by threes so you will have to think a little. It may momentarily distract you from the panic and you'll have a better chance to think clearly.

Look for perspective

Most work crises are overblown. It is important for those caught in the moment to search for perspective by asking themselves if it is a major problem or a problem that is quite fixable. 

Try to be the voice of reason

If you can cultivate the ability to stay calm and look for useful solutions, you will find yourself respected for it.
The ability to stay calm yourself makes others calmer.
