These last six months have been pretty full on for Bojan and me; Bojan’s been working hard to carve his new professional niche in the States and I’ve been making some big career decisions too. Against this backdrop, we’ve been pushing hard on our passion project: Alpha Efficiency.
The publication of Alpha Efficiency Magazine Issue 5 coincided nicely with the run up to Easter and both Bojan and I had some holiday planned. Whilst we wanted to keep pushing ahead with Alpha Efficiency projects we both realized that some down time was essential.
Taking Time to Recharge
Sometimes it’s important to give yourself a break from long-term projects that are well under way; it affords you an opportunity to reflect on why you’re doing it and how well it’s going. For Bojan and me the Alpha Efficiency hiatus gave us the chance to put down our metaphorical pens and focus on other aspects of our lives, whilst continuing to talk to each other about our future plans for Alpha Efficiency.
This has resulted in two positive results:
- We’re back, with renewed enthusiasm. We’ve both had some time to get some important things sorted out and to take a much-needed rest from our creative endeavors. Now we’re back we’ll be throwing ourselves full tilt at all things Alpha Efficiency. We’re still focusing on the Alpha Efficiency magazine but you’ll also see fresh new content coming to the blog too. Plus, we’re still exploring ways to bring other exciting ideas to fruition too.
- Our creative brains have been de-fuzzed. Producing a high volume of content of the quality that we demand for ourselves is hard. Honestly, tapping into our creativity reserves to find new insights whilst running on reserve energy was starting to feel a little labored. As well as re-energizing us, our break has given us new ideas that we’re excited to turn into new material for you, our readers!
Stay tuned to the blog and to the magazine for the next exciting chapter of Alpha Efficiency – you won’t be disappointed!
