New Year == New Challenges

New Year equals new challenges. I see a lot of people moving their priorities in 2023 from working hard to prioritising mental health. One of the reason is that working hard led them to nowhere.

They were overworked and underappreciated. This cost them a lot. The challenge with big companies is how to make the effort being worth it. Most of the companies are very bad at that.

Therefore, many employees saw this is a red flag.

They decided to prioritise themselves.

The best analogy I have for this is the flying with a plane metaphor.

When you fly, you get some safety instructions and one of them is, in case of decompression, you should first put the oxygen mask on yourself before you help other people.

This is a great example of your life too. If you want to be productive and help others, you must first start doing that for yourself.

Go now and create the best year for you. Plan not only hard work but also balance and relaxation time.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
