All too familiar questions asked to ourselves lately!
Yes, my fellow workers, it is the ‘Third Quarter Slump’ blues that have hit us all!
Let’s face it, we have all had a stressful, demanding year thus far and we are somewhere in between the middle and end of it. A kind of nowhere land!
I think back to my previous boss who made it his mission to fly down every year this time to give us the speech…….. “You are all on a train right now which has been running at 100kms an hour. You have just hit a big hill. Stay on this train, as just over the hill you will find it is smooth running until you get to your station.” Or another favourite example was the use of a bus. Once we were even surfers on a wave.
Makes me smile every time I think of those motivational speeches as they were needed. As cheesy as they were, we all felt the same. Drained, tired, lacking that little extra oomph we usually all had.
