What started out as a gloomy day in Santa Clarita ended up being filled with firsts. I know it is important to take time to just enjoy the simple things, but it is easy to forget.
I know this isn’t a normal blog post for our site, but sometimes the best business advice is to take a break and let things slow down a bit. At the office, everyone is required to take lunch away from their desk (I break this rule more than I should). It can be hard to do this when deadlines are tight and days are long, but it is vital to have at least a little downtime. It allows us to do our jobs better.
Earlier this week after the rain cleared up, my husband and I took our daughter out for a walk and a lesson in puddle stomping. Not that children need a lesson in getting wet, but it’s good to let them know that it’s okay to be silly. Sometimes rolling up your sleeves and getting dirty doesn’t mean putting in extra hours in the office, toiling away. Sometimes it means slowing things down a bit and taking time to just enjoy life.
