Make the most of the holiday slump

If it's unusually quiet in your office while you're reading this, it's probably the week between Christmas and New Year's, when most businesses slow down.
Turn this quite time into a productive period with these activities:
  Map your career success. Translate the goals in your recent performance review into a detailed action plan for the new year.
  Transform systems. Update templates, translate paper forms into electronic files that will feed into a database, or test a procedure change you'd like to implement while the office isn't running at full speed and you can tweak it to perfection.
  Study. Practice online tutorials and finally find time to read that business book or machine manual that can help you work more efficiently.
  Research your training options. Don't wait for brochures to arrive in the mail. Seek out seminars and workshops on topics that will help you succeed at the office. Submit your request to the boss before the new year's training budget disappears.
