In this frantic life that we operate our lives in, I often wonder if the only true holiday that we have from our work pressures is during Christmas and New Year. That is not because of the religious or social festivals that are enjoyed then. No, it is because it is the only time the constant invasion of email in your life stops. It is as if a power outage has removed this distraction from our lives. Sure enough, once January dawns and takes hold our little devices starting pinging their interruptions requests and urgencies upon us as we revert to a life not fully under our control.
As we approach this restful period, I though you might appreciate this article by Shane Rodgers of The Australian There are some big messages here – that I recommend you take and implement as soon as you can.
