A Message From Our Founder
Down time is just as important as going hard in the up times.
Rest and relaxation gives your mind and body time to switch off and revitalize after a busy year.
Many projects and businesses are in wind down or hitting a slow period where others are still full steam ahead and at their busiest.
Which-ever category you are in, plan for a break, if not now, soon.
I find I am often at my most energetic during a break and come back to work inspired with ideas flowing.
You can read a few of my tips for switching off and why it’s important for your success here on LinkedIn.
Have a safe holiday season, enjoy yourself and I look forward to speaking to you all in the new year.
Enjoy the rest of your December.
Louise and the Project Community Team
