Having a Hard Time Being Productive Today?

productiveI have to admit, I’m having a hard time being productive today. How about you?

This election cycle has been unlike what many of us have ever seen. The use of fear-based messages about the past, present and future of our country during this campaign has been non-stop.

I’m upset and shaken to my core. I had a laundry list of items to get done today and I can’t seem to get through them.

So here’s what I’m doing instead. I’m reaching out and connecting. I’m emailing former clients to check in, calling colleagues to set meetings, and reaching out to friends to share my love.

We know that our relationships are instrumental to our career success. The more we cultivate them, the easier it is to tap the hidden job market and make transitions when we are ready to make a change. In a time in which our country is divided, there is no better time to reach out and connect.

I wanted to send positive thoughts your way. And if you can’t get anything done today, perhaps just reach out and connect.
