2016 is rolling in…

Hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone and the New Year of 2016 is quickly approaching. It’s a great time to take a break, to focus on the things that are important in life – family, friends, loved ones, and all that that we take for granted during the year.

Perhaps you’re looking for great information on how to grow your business with SEO, marketing techniques, website design, etc., but instead of that, I challenge you to take this last week of 2015 to focus on the most important thing in life. Enjoy time with your family. On a personal note, my mother-in-law passed away this year unexpectedly. This is our first Christmas and New Year’s without her and we are feeling her loss…even as we decorate sugar cookies and visit my father-in-law. Business can wait. Put down the laptop. Get off social media. Focus on your family. We are not guaranteed a moment here on this earth, so take time to cherish the little time you have with your loved ones. Business will be there, even if you take off an afternoon, a day, or a week. When you lay on your death bed, will you really wish you’d sent that email, or will you remember the beautiful times with your loved ones?

You need a work-life balance. If you’ve never considered this, start now. Take off the afternoon and go on a date with your spouse or significant other. Take the kiddos to a movie or to the park, dash about in the snow (if you have any).

From my family to yours, I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I pray that your New Year will be just as beautiful. I pray that the peace of the Lord will shine on you and your family this holiday season.
