This is a such great time to recharge your batteries. Get out in the fresh air, enjoy some recreation, read a few books, BBQ with some friends, and just relax in general. And if you’re in the office this week, this is also a great time to recharge your batteries in the office setting, maybe even take a business associate out for a patio lunch to reacquaint yourselves now that a free moment has presented itself.
In some ways this time of year reminds me of winter holidays and a time for reflection and relaxation. And so much like winter holidays, taking advantage of this quieter time of year can really have some upsides. Now is the time to concentrate on some unfinished projects, spend some time writing down your goals, or catch up on your business reading. In fact one of my good business friends takes a week off around this time of year to spend time alone doing just that.
Whatever your situation, make the most of this quiet time. Make every moment count. Next thing you know, things will get busier, so now is the time to recharge.
