Christmas Season VS Work - Finding the Balance

Over the past few years, I've been relaxing during the christmas period, and working hard in the month of January. I had planned to do some few Internet Marketing routine tasks, but I've found myself following a very similar trend.

This time round, I want to cut down on the backlog. Just doing the most important routine tasks and building it up as the year begins.

Anyone out there who has succeeded in all tasks during this festive season?

    No i have fun and spend time with my family during Christmas...

    But that does not mean that my business does not stop to grow

      Agreed, Christmas is for family occasions and celebrations but that doesn't mean your business will stop growing, also you will work more effectively when you mind is not flustered.

    I will admit it's been harder to find the time to get everything done I would have liked to during the holiday season. I'm not quite done either...going out of town this upcoming weekend to have Xmas with my family. After that, though, it's back to the grindstone.

    Why not try to set your vacations on Christmas season instead of summer.

    Well, it's really hard if you have business. That is the best time when your time management skill really needs to show.

    It is good to spend quality time with your family. The break is also needed, IM involves a lot I'll definitely balance between the two, thanks.

    Most people move slower during the Christmas holiday season. Sometimes, it's a luxury. But you can also use it to your advantage. Work hard while others are relaxing, and you'll win the race, just like the tortoise won by a hare. A lazy hare at that.

    I don't take a break at this time of year but I can see that my work has gone quiet which i find frustrating. I am up to date with my work as it is.

    I like the fact that you can take advantage of the slow pace to outmaneuver your competitor. Nice season to do this!

    We'll as always it is advisable to have a break, time to chill and relax.

    The best time for that i believe and in my opinion is on Christmas holiday, spend time with families and friends.
