My favorite month of the year has arrived … September. The month that marks a welcome turning point in the year. The wild heat of summer fades away. There’s a calming, cool breath, like a deep exhale, you can feel in the air. A grounding back to earth. A resettling of spirit. Soon leaves will begin their turn from green to gold to gone.
September is a time of transition. Of clearing out closets and swapping swimsuits for sweaters. Of trading flip-flops for flannel. (Oh, how I love my flannel. Though preferably, with flip-flops) In short, September is usually a time of “getting comfortable.”
For businesses, September marks the beginning of the end for third quarter goals. When sales numbers may have stagnated during summer breaks, and the pressure mounts to make that final push toward the end of the calendar. If this description hits close to home, “getting comfortable” is the worst thing you can do.
