Long weekends are great for so many reasons. You get to see old friends. You get to take some time away from your computer screen. You’re probably sending less emails than usual. It’s awesome – but how do you get back into the swing of things after quite a few days off? Here are the first things successful people do after a longer break from their desks:
They get up early – Sleeping in will only ruin your first day back at work.
They look over their to-do lists – It’s time to catch up on what you’ve missed and prioritize things accordingly.
They double-check their schedules – Make sure you’re on track for all of your schedules meetings and appointments!
They check in with people – Let the important ones know you’re back and ready to take on any project.
They organize their inbox – You’ve missed A TON of emails. Let’s get that under control.
They focus on work – The past few days, your biggest worry was burning the pie. Now you have other things that need your attention.
Think about the positives from your break – Don’t forget how much you cherished your time off!
