Using the Slow News Day
It’s in these down periods that I get the most work done. Certainly the lack of distractions helps, but it’s more than that. While they’re not out of town or on vacation, others are more available for advice and help. Fewer priorities dominate yours and others schedules. You can take time out to plan and prepare so that you are ready for when things get busy again.
And in the true spirit of this notion, I am going to cut my blog post short for today and take full advantage of this slow news day to prepare for a few meetings I have this afternoon. Feel free to take the time you would have used reading a longer post (if you are in fact still with me) to prepare and get ahead. It’s a good feeling.
