When snow hits the ground, immediately the world of business changes especially in the Mid-Atlantic region. Many businesses close down, including the Federal Government. What I have seen to be most effective is rather than kicking back for a good ole fashioned snow day similar to when we were in school, this is an incredible opportunity to move business opportunities forward. Those who, like myself, prefer to keep the momentum strong, create exceptional outcomes. Many people are home who you cannot reach on a typical work day. They also have cabin fever so hearing about opportunities create a sense of excitement. There isn't the same distraction of workplace noise or being pulled at with requests/questions. So when this type of business day gives the temptation to taking a vacation day, if you REALLY want to make something happen in your career, be ahead of the pack and stay focused on your business goal not the snow!!
