Resetting the balance after the busyness of the previous period and catching up with admin and other essential tasks. We have lots of new events and projects planned for 2020. However it's so easy to get caught up in plans and details and not actually get time to implement new ideas so keeping this quote in mind over the next couple of weeks to keep us moving forward to our 2020 goals
