Wisdom on Wednesday: Theodore Geisel
Following on from the theme of Wisdom on Wednesday last week, I think this Dr Seuss quote sums up many of our feelings at this time of the year!
In our household, the calendar seems to go: August - September - December. October and November may as well not exist as they flash past in an instant.
And then, when December arrives we suddenly realise that all the things that we had planned to do before December haven't been done!
I often wonder if this a universal feeling or one particular to the Southern hemisphere where everything (schools, dancing studios, sporting clubs etc) operates on a calendar year? Plus, here in Australia lots of families take holidays during January, so there is an impetus in the workplace to get things done before Christmas.
Does everything rush to the end of the calendar year in your part of the world?
