Enjoy the holidays / working

It's mid-December. And you're about to go on break. If you're a student, you'll be leaving school. If you're a professional, your office is probably closed. Enjoy your time off.

But don't get soft. Don't come back in January with creative love-handles. Spend a little time every day writing. Or art directing. Or making something. Doesn't have to be advertising. But it has to keep you sharp.

Your work shouldn't be something you long to get away from. School, yes. The office, sure. But not your work.
