You probably noticed that I am not as active with my blogs these days… the reason for that is simple: after 51 weeks of IT Service Management, ITIL and Cloud Computing – I am now spending 2 weeks fully focused on my family… Long lazy days at the pool sipping cocktails and glasses of champagne!
Please join me in enjoying the final days of 2008 and I wish you all a fantastic, successful and amazing 2009! May all your dreams come true… in business and personal.
As you can see this is a pretty old post but the idea is still the same: 51 weeks of the year we serve our customers, clients and students, but the week between Christmas and New Year is the middle of summer here in Australia so we take a well deserved break.
Personally I think it’s good business practice to balance the amount of time you spend with the business and your team with the amount of time you spend with your family.
Spending time with family is so important – you must not forget to pay attention to the people who really matter… not saying that our clients don’t matter but, well you know what I mean. 😉
Of course I’ll still be monitoring the training portal to make sure everything is going OK. I don’t want any of our students to feel uncomfortable or fear that they are left on their own devices.. it’s just that I’m not 100% focussed on the business in these 2 weeks.
Update: in 2016 our office will be closed for the Christmas break from Friday the 23rd of December until Monday the 2nd of January 2017
PS – how are you managing your career or your business? Are you able to take time off to really disconnect and relax? Do you have a mechanism to unwind and recharge? If you don’t … think about the reason why and what you need to do to improve this part of your career and life
