Remaining Accountable in the Midst of Holiday Cheer (And Stress)
Posted on 12/09/2013
It seems that every time December rolls around, someone hits the fast forward button on life. Suddenly, moving at ten times our normal capacity, everything requires our immediate attention: work is piling up, the kids are out of school and requiring extra time (which you obviously want to give), presents need to be wrapped, lights are waiting to be hung, oh and there’s a foot of snow between you and all of these said goals.
It’s important to remember to balance these aspects of your life—and, where your job is concerned, it’s important to remain in touch with clients. Despite all of the tempting distractions (food, friends, family, etc.) it’s vital that you stay a reliable contact for your clients.
Set Reasonable Guidelines
On the other hand, abandoning them the whole month of December because you’re swamped with other things won’t go over well. We know you’ll be busy, but they’ll appreciate your timely responses and assistance with whatever they might need, since December is a busy time for everyone, your clients included.
Remember Important Things
Don’t Send them Clutter
