"Holiday Survival Guide: When Work & Personal Lives Collide" (Creator's Block, Ep. 53)

"Holiday Survival Guide: When Work & Personal Lives Collide" (Creator's Block, Ep. 53) Blog Feature

December 19th, 2017 min read

A few times a year, the entire IMPACT team -- hailing from all across the country -- descends upon our home office in Wallingford, Connecticut, for an entire week of meetings, team-building, and sprawling across every square inch of available desk space to get work done.

Last week was one of those weeks, which meant it was the first time Jessie-Lee, Marcella, and I were in the same place, at the same time.

Marcella, Jessie-Lee, and me! Just look at us. We're delightful.

But during the "most wonderful time of the year," weeks like this can be a double-edged sword.

On the one hand, getting to be together in person does wonders for collaboration. (Oh, and you get a chance to have those big conversations that don't occur organically since typically you aren't in the same physical space as your colleagues.)

On the other hand, the last month of the year -- whether you're in office or working from home -- is always a mad race to the finish. 

The holidays (and vacations) are looming. Budgets are closing. Projects are wrapping. Quarterly objectives are sunseting.

Even for the most seasoned and proactive planners, no checklist or spreadsheet can save you from the fact that, for many professionals, December's trademark is the perfect storm of every conceivable deadline is converging all at once.

How do you survive the end-of-year holiday crunch? And should you unplug once it's all said and done?

Listen in, because we've got our battle-tested recommendations to help you get yourself across the 2017 finish line, sanity intact -- and, we had a very special surprise guest drop in at the very end of the episode!
