A great post from Dan Miller of 48 Days

Thinkimage At Brighthouse, an Atlanta-based innovation consulting firm, staff members get five week’s vacation, AND five Your Days. The five Your Days are free days that the staff are encouraged to use to visit someplace conducive to reflection and thinking. No particular goal to solve anything – just what they call “blue-sky thinking.” CEO Joey Reiman believes this unstructured thinking is just as important to their success as time spent hunkered down in client meetings or looking at computer screens.

Other companies like Maddock Douglas and Google also encourage their workers to spend up to 20 percent of their work hours pursuing whatever intrigues them.

Make sure you’re spending time thinking -- and making your life meaningful
