Balance your work and life this summer...


Like most Americans, yesterday we spent the day outdoors, cooked hot dogs and hamburgers and sweet corn, and sat out under the stars to watch some fireworks. Those are Fourth of July traditions we look forward to and, again this year, we were not disappointed.  There’s something to be said for holidays that mix family and tradition: they remind us of the important things in life. For many, today is the start of the rest of summer, a time when we really try to balance work and life: the challenge is to do both without either being short changed. Get out your calendar and plan the days and nights of the next two months carefully and thoughtfully: that’s the best way to do everything you want and avoid the hard work that is the easy work you didn’t do at the proper time. And it’s the best way to begin to enjoy your summer today.
