Gearing Up and Winding Down

  Nancy Wu, Head of Client Service

The holidays are always an awkward juxtaposition of gearing up and winding down – or maybe it’s gearing up for a wind down.  There are fewer working days, the same amount of work that needs to be done, and more motivation than ever to wrap up the year and hightail out of the office.  But despite that, December is the perfect time to do some personal planning and housekeeping to kick off the New Year right:

  • Establish New Year Resolutions (for Work):  This is the time to indulge in, reflect upon, and pick out new projects you want to tackle for the upcoming year.  Although the general rule for personal resolutions also applies here – don’t get too ambitious.  The work equivalent of “hitting the gym five days a week” is probably not going to happen.  Sorry.
  • Refresh Policies and Procedures:  Those pesky documents always seem to need refreshing.  There’s never a good time to do them, but best to update them now before the rush of the annual close and year-end reporting storms in.
  • Sanitize the Work Station:  Wipe all those little fingerprints off the computer screen.  Start the New Year without remnants of finger pointing from the past!
