I took four weeks holiday over Christmas and New Year. After four weeks of disallowing anything business-related, it took time to get out of first gear. And sometimes I felt like I was in reverse.
Whilst getting back into it, my mind frequently led me astray. I’m usually a disciplined at-home worker, but not in January. Instead of working I was clicking through on websites, checking Facebook, daydreaming or just picking a book up, opening any page and reading.
