How to make the most of your time this holiday season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season has arrived.

Most of us take a break from work this time of year—at least in the United States—and spend time with loved ones. I want to share a few tips that will help you get the most out of your Oasis! It’s such a precious time centered around making memories and relaxing. If you follow these guidelines, it will boost productivity and allow you to keep your focus on the family.

The top 3 tips to make the most of your holiday Oasis include:

• Scheduling time to “check-in” and giving yourself permission to stay checked OUT the rest of the day.

• Carry a notebook with you for those great ideas – review them AFTER the break.

• Review your favorite time management system for a “head start” in the coming year.

The last tip is my favorite! When you spend just a little time getting refreshed on your time management system, you’ll go into the following year more focused and productive!

If you don’t have a favorite time management system, may I recommend my course, Time Management Fundamentals, on LinkedIn Learning? You can find it at

Do you have fun plans for the holiday break? I’d love to hear about it!
