Am I the only one experiencing déjà vu? As we prepare to flip the calendar (for those of you who, like me, may still have a real calendar hanging in your house/office), I feel vaguely like this has all happened before. The pandemic surely has caused time to stand still and move at lightning speed seemingly at the same time. So, I am making myself put a hard stop on things as we end the year. I'm taking time to rest, relax and reset before I tumble into 2022 and whatever it may bring. We already know that the Omicron variant is taking hold and one of our industry's largest events, the RSA Conference, recently moved its dates from February to June. Here's hoping things will be better under control and we can meet up IRL in June.
For now, I'm getting ready to sign off and spend time with my family before our girls head back to college in the next few weeks. I've been reading some favorite authors, finding new ones, and even revisiting some of my favorite yoga teachers and their methods of relaxation. A friend shared this article on the 7 types of rest and since I was thinking of talking about ways to reset, I thought I'd share that with all of you. You can find it here. I just might see how many of the types of rest I can accomplish. I challenge you to do the same.
I never thought I'd say this, but maybe the old help desk trick of shutting off and restarting is actually one that works for more than technology? Maybe it works for us after a busy year before we get ready to restart? Here's to a healthy end of 2021 that allows us all to reset and be ready for a productive 2022 for ourselves and our industry. Cheers!
