I always forget until it’s here that I’m actually NOT a big fan of the holiday season. There’s so much scheduling and planning and hunting down the right gifts, holiday party after party, pretending to be merry when really all I want to do is lay on the couch and have a Doctor Who marathon.
AND in the midst of it all, I have WORK to get done! I somehow have overwhelmed my schedule for November and so getting a day at home (today) to get caught up on the work I have to do is much needed and a relief. My goal is to have 2 days at home a week to DO the work. Lately it’s turned into one day, or even “just one quick meeting” which takes me away from home for a solid 2 hours.
I am sure once Christmas day arrives I’ll be in a better mood (plus we’re staying here this year, YAY) and less Ebenezer about the whole thing. In the mean time, I’m being selfish with my schedule, saying no to things that I maybe should say yes to, and making sure that I’m getting the work done.
How are you prioritizing your clients and your work during this more than usual chaotic season?
