Are things as crazy for you as they have been for me this year? This particular week used to be fairly quiet but it seems that people are working right up to the Christmas weekend and not taking any time off. I noticed this afternoon high school kids in uniform walking in a group – probably from seeing a movie for their Christmas break-up or something – and heading back to school. There was a time when school was already closed by this time of the year.
I’ve elected to go off duty between 23rd December and 1st January inclusive – whilst I’ll be checking on emails and answering the occasional call, it’s usually fairly quiet during that week and so I’m going to spend time with my family, catching up on a pile of reading, and experimenting with a few website changes.Â I like using that time to learn, experiment and practice – something I don’t always get the time to do during the year.Â My Business Coach tells me that is going to change in the New Year and the thought does excite me!.Â The thing is I always have a new project to pursue, something else to try out and I love learning how to do things.
May I encourage you to make sure you also have some family time, time for reflection (always good for New Year planning – or resolutions if you keep them!), catch up on some planned reading and get refreshed for the New Year – it’s sure to be as busy (or as crazy) as this one’s been!
Merry Christmas to all, and may the New Year bring you lots of new and exciting discoveries!Â KMT
