The Benefit of The Holidays
It is certainly a hectic time of year. These days the projects and deadlines have been piling up and CSS -with a growing roster of international clients in different time zones – is now a 24/7 operation. As I write this in the wee hours of the morning, I confess to looking forward to my holidays-however brief. Surprisingly the best ideas I have ever had have always occured during the holidays. It is a time to relax your mind, and distract yourself with the truly important things in your life: friend and family. Somewhere following a few good nights sleep, and having re-charged by eating real food, the wheels in my head start turning again. Without the distractions of daily communications, or deadlines, the ideas flow freely like a river through my head where I begin to ponder each one by one. Whether these ideas are “micro” (strategy or indicator specific), or “macro” (theoretical, concepetual or business planning insights), I always manage to get excited over a few gems. The holidays is not just a time of pallid new year’s resolutions. It is a time to re-discover yourself, get in touch with those you care about, and best of all- a time to think of new ideas. And as you all know, I like to share these ideas as much as I can.
Happy Holidays to All ……..and don’t forget to check back, I might have a lightbulb moment and feel the urge to post something crazy.
