Generally, I despise the “one giant goal at the beginning of the year” approach…[My previous] idea was that I would focus on one goal a month; that goal would become a habit; then I just add on the next goal at the beginning of the next month. That method is no longer working out for me.
Sometimes, all we need is a little space. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked, and simply frayed, trying giving yourself some space. That may mean space away from what you’re working on – taking a week off! – or some distance between yourself and people around you.
The great thing about giving back is that you can get your name out there while doing some good for other people. There’s nothing wrong with wanting people to see where your company places value. It’s the perfect way to show people what is important to you.
