If you’re like many business owners and dedicated managers, it has been a tough year. I know I’ve been booking long hours to keep my business in the black.
The problem: A lot of us are cutting into serious personal time … and there is a price you may end up paying. Yes, work a few seven-day weeks and some 12-hour days. That’s what you may have to do these days.
HOWEVER, you MUST take time for relaxation, for play, for family. YOU MUST!
With the holidays coming up, plan your time carefully. Sure, you may have to work right up to 8:00 PM the evening before Thanksgiving, but then be sure to take a whole day off to enjoy friends and family. Same with Christmas or whatever you celebrate in December.
The bottom line: Give yourself permission to enjoy the holidays this year.
So, work hard, make money, have fun … and be sure to take some time for the most important things this holiday season. — JRI

or later to find time for illness.”
