In the last week of August, nothing seems to get done. E-mail goes unanswered, meetings are rescheduled, even my local favorite coffee shop is empty as people sneak away for their vacations.
Indeed, last week, Jonathan Spira’s commentary in this space was a mere 83 words long as he rushed out for a holiday trip.
I enjoy this time of year, but therein lies the rub. Starting next week, all those same people will be back at work and back in their inboxes, refreshed and flush with a sense of false urgency.
But do we really need to bring those stress levels back to normal?
While you think about it, I’m outta here…
