Action. That’s the name of the game after the summer.
A client once said to me the three months of September, October and November are always the busiest of the year for a few reasons:
It’s the ‘2nd half’ of the year so people expect to do more in the same amount of time. [check the calendar dude]
Expectations are screwed from a summer of booze and sport (or sport and booze) - ergo, we come back to work feeling like we are a superhero. [99% of us are not]
Bonuses are based on performance running up to Christmas
Pressures on because August is the most popular month to move house AND divorces happen in January [related? this guy thought so]
So - this newsletter 12 is dedicated to action.
