E595: Getting Back At It

Ready, Set, Get Back At It!


We often have times when we are off from work and it’s always a struggle to get started again when our time off has ended. It’s hard getting back on the horse and getting going. Here is some help.


  1. Prepare upfront – before you are going to be away from the office
    1. Write a To Do list for your first day back
    2. Clean off you desk
    3. Leave some open time on your schedule
  2. Getting back on the horse
    1. If you prepared, jump right into your tasks
    2. If not
      1. Clean off your desk
      2. Create a list of “quick hit” items to complete first
      3. Let your email wait
      4. Focus on taking action – one item at a time
