A toast for summer: Relaxation, inspiration & motivation!
Ahhh... summer. How I love thee! A lazy beach day, fake-complaining about how hot it is, a cool libation at 5:00 (or 2:30 because it actually is that hot). What a nice change of pace from the rest of my year, which usually runs pretty crazy. In addition to turning off my brain for a while — maybe even my phone, too... I said maybe — I like to use the downtime to refresh (literally, as in "Cheers!") and prep for the busy season that's ahead. Sometimes that means getting reorganized at work. You know, tackling the dreaded pile of "Misc" stuff that I'll be so glad I don't have to look at anymore, but would rather count a giant jar of paper clips than deal with. So fun. Or it could be more pleasant and productive things like thinking about my business, planning the next few months, working on big-picture stuff. That's the upside of a slowdown; you have time to recharge and get motivated. Then, when business and life go back to their regular fast pace, you feel ready to tackle it all. Bring it on!
I'm keepin' it short and sweet this week... I have a cocktail waiting for me and I don't want the ice to melt too much! So I'm sharing some quotes that might help you get motivated and think about your big picture, whether it's your life or your business. I hope you're enjoying your summer — even if you work in the air conditioning business and this IS your busy season! Whatever the case, cheers!
