Have a “Joyful” Labor Day!

For many, Labor Day means one last jab at summer. One final day to relax before we get back to school, work, and brace ourselves for the coming winter.

How are you choosing to celebrate this Labor Day? Spending a day on the beach, or time with friends and family? We posted recently on the Value of Vacation and the importance of making a conscious effort to savor our time off. But Labor Day is not just any old “day off.” It is a day to appreciate what our nation’s workers have done for our country, and to recognize our own contributions to our jobs and families.

Allison Rimm’s upcoming book Joy of Strategy offers insights on the best ways to create a meaningful plan for work and life. Her 8-Step Strategic Planning Program will help you:

Joy of Strategy

  • Find your purpose
  • Envision what you want your life to look like
  • Create list of tangible goals
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses
  • Prioritize your goals
  • Take some time to meditate and evaluate
  • Select tools that will get you on a successful path
  • … and take the first step!

So this Labor Day, take a moment to relax, to appreciate the accomplishments you have made, and perhaps reevaluate your goals for the year. Check out Allison Rimm’s website for tips to get you motivated, organized, and on your way to a fulfilling life.
