Vacations cost money and you want to get your money’s worth – you want to actually GET a vacation. Will it give you what you hope for this year? Can it truly be considered a vacation if you don’t return feeling rejuvenated? To ensure your holiday meets your desires, it’s crucial to reflect on what you seek from your time off and share and plan accordingly. In this episode, I explore the idea of establishing and discussing your vacation expectations BEFORE you hit the road. Let’s make your next vacation your best ever! 

In this episode, John discusses: 
●      Preparing for your vacation
●      Setting personal and spiritual expectations for a joyful vacation
●      Guarding against unmet vacation expectations
●      Healthy communication and compromise about vacation expectations with family and friends 

Key Takeaways:
●      Learn how to maximize your vacation and make it truly restful and rejuvenating by setting practical, spiritual, and personal expectations that will help you avoid the vacation trap of unmet expectations.
●      By considering the four primary objectives related to vacation expectations, you can come back from your next vacation feeling clear-minded, confident, rested, and ready to take on your responsibilities once again.
●      When planning your vacation, consider your personal expectations and how they may affect your spiritual habits, and be open and intentional about discussing your expectations with family and friends to minimize tensions and maximize unity and fun.
●      It’s important to consider financial expectations when planning your vacation, and to be clear on your own personal financial plans and limits, while also being mindful of the financial situation of family and friends, and finding ways to enjoy vacation spots that cost nothing. 

“So often, some of the greatest memories don’t cost a penny.”
–       John Putnam
