It's okay to be a little lazy

Rich Darby,
Chief Operating Officer
One of the greatest “silent” gifts given to us each holiday season is the gift of laziness. In the hustle and bustle of today’s business and personal world, we are moving at a faster pace than ever.

It seems around the holidays everyone eases up on the gas pedal, and we allow ourselves to be just a bit more lazy than normal. I truly believe this ok. I believe we all need to take some time and just rejuvenate every once in a while. We deserve to focus on family and friends, and understand that business will be there after Christmas. There is nothing wrong with taking a few days just for you. If you are beating yourself up and fighting an internal struggle right now, stop fighting. I encourage you to allow yourself a few days to re-energize. You will be far more productive afterwards.

I have plans to take some time off between Christmas and New Year’s. I am looking forward to spending some wonderful time with my lovely wife. I haven’t abandoned my work ethic. I haven’t thrown away thoughts or work projects. I have just put them on hold for a few days. I am allowing myself to “de-stress.” Don’t worry, when January comes around, my articles will change. I will once again be kicking everyone’s rear to get up out of our chairs because there is business to take care of. Until then, Happy Holidays from the Darby family.
