Downhill Skating is Dangerous at the best of Times

Often when schedules get backed up because of unforeseen events, there’s a temptation to try and complete all of our tasks, responsibilities and projects at double-time. Unfortunately, this is a little like skating downhill. At first it seems to be going along just fine, and then we start to pick up speed. Which is good, right? But then, oftentimes our skate hits a rock, or a crack, or some other hazard along the way. Before we know it, we’re going head-over-heels into a setback that is even worse than the original delay.

So by all means, as your recovery day begins, whether it’s from the recession, or just a thunderstorm-induced flight delay, get up to speed as quickly as possible. But make sure you’re all still wearing your helmet, by taking a moment to re-assess what’s critical, and what can be re-scheduled, or has become redundant. That way, you can make sure you’re not just skating downhill.

Safe skating,

Megann & Steve
