What Will You Do With an Extra Day?

Every four years, there are several special opportunities that we have before us.  There are the Summer Olympics, this year to be hosted in the beautiful city of London, through which we get to renew our sense of patriotism and become riveted by some sports that we probably won’t see again until the next Olympics.  This year also brings us a presidential election, and either you live in a state that already has received a barrage of campaign advertising or you will soon.  In a few months, we will know if President Barack Obama has earned another term or if one of the Republican hopefuls will be taking a seat in the Oval Office.

Another exciting component of 2012 is its status as a leap year.  You get an extra day to make 2012 matter and that extra day happens here in the month of February.  Did you realize that when you flipped over your desk calendar a few weeks ago?  If you haven’t decided how to spend that extra day this month, I’d like to offer a few suggestions:

1. Write five thank-you notes to people who have helped your career in some way over the past few months.

2. Update your social networking pages with a better photo, more recent examples of your work, and any new contact information.

3. Try a new restaurant with some colleagues during lunch and leave a generous tip for the harried server who brought your food with a smile and always kept the water glasses full.

4. Go to the library and browse the new releases in the business section.  Pick one out and read it from cover to cover.  If it’s good, make sure to tell others about it!

So, what do you think?  You have this extra day coming up that extends the month and its possibilities just a bit.  Why not make the most of it?  Let us know how you plan to take advantage of the time granted by this leap year.
