    Question Are you going to work hard or take it easy during the end-of-year holidays?

    In the normal world of salaried professionals that that work as full-time employees, the holiday season is often a time where personal time and family activities take the front seat.

    How about for us affiliates? Are you taking it easy during the holidays, or are you going to be working extra hard over the next few weeks?

    Besides answering the poll question, be sure to share why and your philosophy around trading off getting work done and taking time off to relax.

    I spend all day 'working for the man' and all night working for myself. The holidays are one of those few times where I get significant time off from my career (which I enjoy) to take care of business matters. I usually use this time to tweak my business plan, update my files, and get ready for a 'fresh start' next year.

    Joe and I were just discussing this today. He took me out for the 'company lunch'. It was not satisfacory as I did not get a Christmas Bonus! However, I did get to keep the Keno tickets.

    What does Casino City do for Christmas?

    I will be taking a little time off to spend with my son, but I do plan on working a normal day.

    It's easy because it does not feel like work.
    Merry Christmass!

    Only job I have now I will keep my normal schedule during the holidays with the obvious exception of taking Christmas Day off. I have way too much to do to take it easy. As the new year approaches there are plenty of things that need to be closed out befor the the 1st. So a vacation is out of the question for now.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    I will also be working through, as its a good opportunity to get stuff done without interruptions and a nice time to clean out the non performers and do a general overall spring clean of the sites.
    I am also planning on taking Christmas Day off, doing my usual swimming 20 laps a day and generally trying to take it a bit easier than normal.
    I have good intentions, but it is not so easy with my computer beckoning me all the time
