Take pause and celebrate your efforts

Dear Colleagues, with such a hectic start to the year (ARC, teaching, PSP, etc) please take a moment to pause and reflect on your efforts.  It’s all too easy to finish a huge job and simply move onto the next big job.  I’m encouraging everyone to stop, thank those who work with you, recollect your thoughts and take a fresh look at the next challenge.  It’s a pleasure working with you, Tim
