For many of us, the new work year starts tomorrow. I mean this related to work of any kind, including searching for work. I don't know about you - but I want to feel less depleted as I go through and end this year.
This thought came to me today when my husband John Griffiths and I were riding our indoor cycling trainers, practicing managing pace for 3,878 feet of vert and 12.59 miles. That's a lot of climbing in not a lot of miles, for anyone wondering.
Managing pace on the bike today was aimed at starting the riding year with solid base miles which sets us up to feel strong - to feel good - to not feel depleted today, throughout the year and at year's end.
Managing pace in work life isn't all that different. Practicing managing pace is a big part of setting ourselves up for success in work life just as in cycling life.
As we all start the work year, may we keep in mind that the practice of managing pace is important here too aimed at feeling strong, feeling good - not feeling depleted. It's a practice which means some days will be better than others - and the practice matters.
Here's to pacing > depletion!
