In the doldrums of winter, our energy starts to flag. Cold and gray days can start to seem like an endless loop. Remember that winter always gives way to spring eventually. The same is true of our work life. Businesses also have seasons; some months are plentiful and full of new projects and activity. Other periods are lean and relatively inactive. No matter what the conditions are, stick to your goals and plan your time wisely. During down periods, you might be able to accomplish tasks and projects that would be impossible during busy seasons. Make sure you use your time to your advantage, no matter what the season.
