My great idea this week is pretty simple. Spring is here and many of us are about to go from being half asleep to working 24 hours/day. This is very hard to do and you need to proceed with caution.
I used to think that if I just worked a little bit harder, I could get everything done and everything would work itself out. I have learned that you can’t just keep working harder and expect things to always be better. As I often say, “The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.” (I did not make that up; the Internet does attribute a variation of it to Gerald Burrill.) If you feel you might be in a bad spot, it’s advisable to stop and look at the situation.
** At Grunder Landscaping Co. we just had our 2016 Season Kick-off! We want to make sure that we set and cover all of our expectations for team members.**
In the coming weeks if you feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure what to do, take a deep breath and go to lunch. Get out of the office and go for a walk. Do something, but don’t neglect your health or your mental well being.
I’m a big proponent of hard work, but I also have learned when I’ve reached the point of diminishing returns. I hope you know this point as well.
