As I write this, much of the world is in slumber. It’s the holiday season, and many are on vacation or taking the week off. Families are getting together to exchange gifts, eat food, and nap excessively.
A lot of my friends are taking a break from social media. And many bloggers are encouraging their readers to unplug: to rest, fast from the online world, and be present to those they love most. Which is great, but incomplete, advice.
Yes, be present. Be available. But don’t go on autopilot. This is the perfect time to get ahead. Don’t waste it.
