When things get hectic, sometimes the hardest thing to do is to take a breath and relax. But it’s often the best thing you can do.
When Kristin Hess and I (the Kristi/ens) need a fresh take on something or just need to clear our heads because we can’t think straight, we often grab lunch somewhere fun to have a meeting, instead of in each other’s office or crowded around our computers.
Some days, the only place we can make time for is our picnic table in the back — but when it’s a nice sunny day and we’ve both brought our lunch, it’s perfect. Other days call for a short drive to the DUOS kitchen or Goose the Market. And, yes, sometimes, it’s an after-work meeting at Sun King or Flat 12.
Whatever the place, a change of scenery often does the trick. We’re reinvigorated and ready to tackle the next project.
What do you do when things get hectic?
