The next few months are going to be hectic. Between the long hours, the anxiety, and the pressure at work, busy season makes it hard to take a moment to enjoy a movie, a dinner date, or your favorite show on Netflix.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way! Busy season may be here, but you can break the cycle! It’s time to shake off the dust, have a little fun, and think about you. That’s right — the most important task on your list should be taking some time to seriously think about what you need to feel happy and successful.
How can you do that?
When it comes to getting a clear picture of what you want out of life, it’s important to find quiet, focused, spacious, inspired, and creative time to think about it, which can be challenging. And not only do you need to find this time, you should feel supported while you do it. That support can come from your friends, family, coworkers, and, if you’re really lucky, your company.
At Siegfried, the company culture is dedicated to helping people find the time to be more reflective on their thinking and feelings about their career, relationships, life, and success. Specifically, what, why, how, when, where and, perhaps most importantly, with whom they should best be doing things!
All of this is part of what Siegfried calls leadership advisory, a concept that puts the power to become a better leader — and as a result, the power to exponentially improve your life — in your hands. At a recent leadership development event sponsored by Siegfried, our CEO and Founder discussed finding courage and passion to do something that builds your confidence and energizes you.
So, now that you feel ready to conquer the busy season blues, it’s time to conquer your happiness, which means taking time for yourself! If you enjoy walks, take a long one this weekend and think about what the next step in your career is. If you drink coffee, visit a nearby coffee shop and write down some feelings about the most important people in your life. If you feel inspired when you’re near water, find the nearest lake, skip some rocks, and consider where you want to be in five years.
It doesn’t matter where you start — all that matters is you find time to think about you!
