LOOK FORWARD TO THE HOLIDAYS RATHER THAN DREAD THEM



In order to balance the parties to attend, the gifts to buy and the people to visit during the holiday season you may need some general tips to work more efficiently and to help you stay focused and organized.  Set short-term goals.  Setting daily and weekly goals for yourself will help you stay ahead of the unexpected developments that can ruin a holiday.  

To stay on top of deadlines, make a prioritized list of tasks await your attention.  Close the door. During holidays, productivity can drop to record lows.  Stay focused by keeping interruptions and distractions to a minimum during work hours.  Put a “do not disturb” sign on your office door and screen your calls if necessary.  To maintain your work flow, run errands before work, during lunch time or at the end of the day.

Don’t be a workaholic.  Find help.  If the holidays are the busiest time of your year for your business, get help if you need it.  Ask family members to pitch in.  Hire someone to assist you by using a temp agency.  The more you enjoy your time, the more you’ll enjoy your life - especially during the holidays.

Take frequent breaks.  Set aside time each day to do the non-work activities you enjoy the most.  Read a book.  Take a swim or soak in the hot tub.   Go shopping.  When you take frequent breaks, you’ll be more productive when you return to the job in progress.  And, after a hard day’s work, reward yourself.  Savor a good dinner.  Spend an evening with good friends.  You’ll enjoy your work - and the holidays!
