Focus Schmocus.. It’s Almost 2017


Do you know how hard it is to focus and complete tasks as the year winds down?

Some days.. it’s tough.

I love the opportunity to organize my desk and map projects.  I also love having time to socialize with my coworkers. Usually we’re ‘head-down’ and into whatever task we have to get done. At the end of the year though, few of us are in the frame of mind to crank out work. We want to take our foot off the pedal. I definitely want to take my foot off the pedal.

It was easy to do that today. One of my coworkers brought her new baby to the office. There were two or three new gift baskets dropped off that needed to be reviewed! I had a department luncheon, off site!

I still managed to get work done this afternoon and did not feel one bit guilty at the pace. The work will still be there tomorrow. The deadlines have not changed. I gave myself permission to relax and enjoy the camaraderie at my workplace knowing that as soon as the majority of staff return from that holidays, we’ll get more added to our task lists and have less time to visit.

Here’s wishing you a very fun and relaxed end to your work year and much success in 2017.
