In praise of working during the holiday lull

Commutes are lighter.

Trains are less crowded.

The office has fewer distractions.

Embrace it. If you’re working this quiet stretch, it probably feels a lot more productive than what you’ll face in January.

I took an extra day off to enjoy the nothingness of being at home after Christmas. The shopping and cooking were all done, and I had no obligations. It was awful.

Work feels good. The routine itself is comforting, and chipping away at your tasks on your pace is a luxury to enjoy. So here’s to the working crew. Grab that leftover fudge that someone in Accounting dropped off in the kitchen and cheer your good fortune. Then get back to work.

On your own time, of course.
