I’ll admit it. I slowed down way more than I had intended over the Thanksgiving holiday. I brought all of this work with me and have my virtual office set up, but the distractions are overwhelming. Not only did I travel with my two cats, but my parents (with whom I’m staying) have 10 cats and a dog. No, they don’t live on a farm. My dad is an amateur (some would say pro!) cat rescuer. Two of his prize catches are above (Gizzy and Edgar).
I’ve heard of other professionals insisting on staying in a hotel room even when visiting family–just to have their own work space. Most of us can’t afford that, but we can set parameters if we intend to get work done.
I always think things will be different next time . . .
