First Day Back at Work after a Break
How do you feel when you return back to work after a break or vacation?
What do you do to get back in the Mojo of work?
Do you stage your return or do you hit work hard and fast?
Today was my first day back to my full time role managing School Holiday Programs for young people. It was an early start this morning as I had to go to the office on the way to opening up one of the programs. It was the first day at several of the programs for the Summer Holidays (In Australia it is Summer at the moment). If things can go wrong today is the day that they will go wrong…… So the morning was spent fixing up issues, while the afternoon was spent touring the programs to see what was happening on the ground.
The pace of the last week and a half has been quiet relaxed and so the fast paced work environment got the heart pumping. That said I think that by lunch time I had settled down and focused on the issues that were most urgent to deal with and let go of the others. By the afternoon I knew that in this role, which I started in December, will be challenging (in a good way) and will certainly keep me busy for months to come as systems are built to avoid the issues experienced today in the future.
To answer my own questions above, I guess I did jump back in to work hard and fast, though that said, I do not plan to wear myself out in doing so. I will be balancing my life with time with my lovely wife and family, exercise and other pursuits…. That said I am a little tired today and I think I will take a nap (sleep) after I walk the dog…… Wishing you an awesome 2013….
