Today is the Monday morning of all Monday mornings.
Returning to work after weeks of holiday indulgences can feel a bit overwhelming. Or, as evidenced by one of my good friend’s, FB post – an active Mom of two elementary-school-aged sons – “is it bad to be excited to go back to work? me time!” returning to work might be a welcome relief!
No matter what camp you fall into – the happy to be returning or the not-so-happy’s – why not start your return to the work world on a high note by taking a moment to answer this question:
What was the single most important thing you accomplished in 2010?
That’s right, before officially starting 2011, take a moment to think about your greatest moment(s) of 2010, and go from there.
Mine was my return to Macedonia.
If you are in the mood to share, take a moment to list your accomplishment (s) in below. Don’t be shy. Thinking about and sharing it is bound to get you in a good – or at least a better mood – and reviewing your accomplishments and sipping a nice big cup of coffee might help get your creative juices flowing again.
And, if you are too timid to write it here, please take a moment to note it somewhere: on your calendar, day-planner, in your phone or even in an email you send to yourself. Recognizing and recording it will create a nice re-entry glow for the New Year.
In the meantime, welcome back!
