T Minus a few days until you are able to relax, rewind, and rejuvenate during the week between Christmas and the New Year.
If your school or district doesn’t close for administrators then I suggest you take the days off!
It is critical that you slow down and take time for YOU and those you love.
While away from the office, please don't do too much work at home. Optimally, you would do zero work, but I know some of you just can’t go COLD TURKEY. I couldn’t either.
Here are some tips:
Pick a time in the morning and evening to check your emails.
If you come upon something that needs your follow-up, either flag it, mark it as unread or send it back to yourself to open when you are in the office.
In the time between the morning and evening email check-in, do some FUN things. Whatever seems fun to you….do it!
Yes, I know some of you find work fun but find something else to do for fun while you are on break, and you will see the difference it makes in your work.
In friendship, love and leadership,
