#015: The Importance of an Annual Retreat

Subscribe to the Show

In this episode, Erick Rheam, shares his experience going on his annual retreat on a sleeper car train from Indianapolis, Indiana to Seattle Washington.

It’s critically important to take strategic pauses in your life so that you may rest, reflect and evolve to stay on track towards significance.  Life is messy and exhausting at times, and without a mechanism to protect against the chaos of your life, then burnout and regret will be your constant companion.

Erick discusses his personal experience fresh off his latest retreat where he rode an Amtrak sleeper car train across seven states and passed three time zones before he ultimately found himself in downtown Seattle where he stayed an extra two days before flying home to complete his journey. 

Erick unpacks what he learned and shares his recommendations if you decide to duplicate his journey for your own personal retreat.
