During the summer months, it is often difficult to move ahead on projects. People are not in the office, and even with smartphones and other technological devices that keep us in touch, communications slow down. Most employees cannot operate at a frenetic pace forever, and the opportunity to breathe and relax is healthy for everyone. Labor Day is the last gasp of summer.
But for productivity to be what it needs to be, vacations must end and work must resume. There are less than four months left in the year. In many businesses, Labor Day marks the beginning of a final push toward accomplishing objectives set for the year.
This Labor Day, the last holiday of summer, take a moment to reflect on the successes you have had so far this year—both personal and work-related. Savor them. Be thankful. Celebrate with those you care about.
Monday night, take another moment to plan your Tuesday. What are the three things you MUST accomplish on Tuesday? Write them down.
And what are three more things you MUST accomplish by the end of the week? Write them down also.
Then, on Tuesday, hit the ground running. There are less than four months left in 2015.
Happy Labor Day!
