How to Enjoy Christmas in Your Business
As a person in business, does December become a hectic month for you? Are you trying to clear out everything you have to do so you can enjoy at least a couple of days off? Do you also have to write Christmas cards, decorate your office and buy gifts for special customers? Finding time and enjoying the holidays with family and friends is challenging.
Like many business people you will even check emails and do a bit of work when you've promised your family your attention. As a business person, it's easy to feel guilty when you take a bit of time for yourself. Here are some tips to ensure that you enjoy the holidays and your business:
No-one ever said on their death bed that they regretted spending time with their family, so make sure that when you say you won't be working, you're not working.
2. Clear your desk
Between now and when you intend to stop working for the holidays, have a clear action plan of all the tasks you want to accomplish.This sounds obvious, but it's all too easy to commit to something the day before you want to stop working and then have to work over the holidays as a result.
3. Make some time for you
We often forget about looking after ourselves, but the holidays are an ideal time to make sure you recharge your batteries and prepare yourself for the New Year; for example, read a book.
4. Tell your employees and customers
If you're shutting down over the holidays, tell your customers about your plans well in advance. Make sure their needs are met before you close; they will understand.
5. Have a good time
Finally, don't forget to enjoy Christmas and what it stands for. It is a time of year to reflect, relax and have a bit of fun, so make sure that you do.
Our Christmas wish to you; relax, enjoy the season and have a very prosperous New Year!
