Here at the A Different Kind of Work office (aka my kitchen table whilst waiting for an office desk to arrive), I’ve been thinking about some wise words I could write this holiday week. But the truth is that I’m a little distracted with things like going to parties (or not, because of the snow), shopping for gifts and food, writing and posting greetings cards, and all the million and one things that get on the must do list for Christmas.
That’s not to mention the Fox’s Special Christmas chocolate biscuit box that has mysteriously been opened earlier than planned. Or the mince pies we seem to have started eating because we had visitors the other night who fancied them.
So the holiday spirit has taken over and the wise-word Christmas blog post has never got written. And rather than force myself to just do something because of my weekly schedule and not wanting to be seen as a less than committed blogger, or work late tonight to crank one out and upset my family in the process, I decided to do this brief post instead.
I figured that giving myself and you a break was being true to what my business is about. And if I can’t do that, what kind of role model about work and life am I being for you?
So I’m going to be downplaying things a bit over the holidays. I’m not leaving the planet or anything and you’ll still see me popping up from time to time on Twitter. But for now I’m just not pretending to be working when really I’m not.
