THE END IS NIGH!
Wow – seems like this year has flown by and 2016 is rapidly approaching! I’m not sure about you, but for our research team it has been a huge one and this time of year is generally a mad scramble to get things finished off before that all important summer holiday period. Ahhhhh, I can almost taste that Christmas dinner… But… that data still needs analysing, that paper needs to be submitted…
Sometimes at this time of year it’s really important to take a breath and get the priorities sorted. You don’t want to finish the year off and feel like you couldn’t meet those key milestones. Better to make a list now of what needs to be done, what can be done, and decide what can get shifted to next years list.
Energy levels can be low, and this can affect motivation and ultimately productivity. Will that break ever come? Make sure you plan to take some time off, and it’s enough to recharge the batteries. Back in July, Rowan penned a blog titled ‘Take a break’, and now is probably a good time to revisit that. Some of you might feel like the plane Topper is flying back to the carrier at the end of Hot Shots… “Lost a wing…. There goes the other one…” (Click here for a reminder and a laugh)
Will you make it?
You will, but a quick flight check and breather now might make for a smoother landing, and ultimalety a better start to 2016.
