March Into Spring
March means three things: St. Patrick’s Day, green everywhere, and the (hopeful) end of winter. That’s right, the first day of spring comes to us on March 20th. For people who suffered the long hard slings of winter, the beginning of spring couldn’t have come any sooner. But, for us southern Californians who maybe didn’t get 5 feet of snow or temperatures that could make a polar bear shiver, what does the beginning of spring really entail? Well, first of all as with the beginning of any season it’s a new time to reevaluate business decisions and ventures. Seasonal changes are perhaps the four times year when most businesses have acknowledged that they really take the time to determine long term goals for the season whether they have changed with the weather or change because of previous developments. If your business is doing this then that’s great, if not then maybe take the time to see if this is the right time to start your new scheduling, construction project, or casual Friday at the office. By doing this it gives the company a timeline to be more resourceful and have dates to look forward too. With Spring coming on the 20th, what is the importance of that day? For one, there is an old myth that on the first day of Spring, called the equinox, it is the only day of the year that you can balance a raw egg on it’s end. Pretty cool, huh? We’ve been too busy with work to know if that’s true or not but give it a try and let us know what you find. Happy Spring!
