It’s fun to travel and the trip to Washington for GAC is always a good time. Some of you might be taking a day or two off when you get back but for those of you that are going straight back to work, it can be tough to get back in rhythm of your office. If you’re finding it difficult to get back in the swing of things after you get back home, here are a few things to remember…
Go hard early: You’re probably tired after flights and long days and understandably so. If you’ve got a lot of tasks to catch up on, you may feel swamped. You can do yourself a favor by going hard out of the gate. That way when the afternoon lull hits, you’ll be ahead of the game. Hopefully it’ll be a slow couple of days to end the week, but if you’re busy, stay caffeinated.
Give your email some special attention: If a normal day for you usually involves a lot of email, you may get anxious just looking at the current state of your inbox. If you find yourself in this predicament, dedicate some time to tackling that beast. Sorting through junk mail can be time consuming, so you may spend a lot of time looking through it before you even have a chance to look at anything of value.
Ask for help: If anyone you employ is having a slow day, let them try their hand at something new. It will get something off your plate for the day and you might discover some hidden talents that might lead to new opportunities for your employees.
