Happy Labor Day!
Last night, I had dinner with the co-owner of a small technology business. Of the two owners, she is the organized, detail-oriented one. She is the one the clients and vendors call with confidence, knowing she will quickly respond to their request.
Like in many growth-stage businesses with limited staffing, each day is busier than the one before. The owners work long hours to serve their clients and continue building the business.
Yesterday, my friend was tired. She even admitted that the interns in the office are starting to tease her about all the piles on her desk that have appeared out of nowhere in the past few weeks.
It reminded me that even those of us who are naturally organized need to take a break every now and then or the hectic pace of life will draw us into disorder and chaos.
Take a break from your labors this weekend. The piles and stacks of papers begging for your attention will still be there on Tuesday, but you will be refreshed and ready to cut through the clutter and reclaim your office at the start of a new season.
Happy (rest from your) Labor Day!
