It is good see a number of those in the business are taking some time off. According to the quantity and content of automated out-of-office email responses to this week’s Weekly Email Summary, a number of folks are taking not only today but most of next week off. Frankly, I think that’s a good idea, regardless of how well off or dire your respective situation may seem. Proper rest and relaxation is a crucial component to maximizing effectiveness so enjoy the holiday season with family and friends! As an aside, I noticed a number of auto responses from executives and/or development professionals included a message about considering a donation to the organization before the year’s end – smart.
