New Orleans has a lot of seasons, and I do not mean the weather. We have crawfish, Mardi Gras, music with French Quarter and Jazz Fest, football, and the list goes on.
What I have learned in my career over the past 30 years is that you have to carve in your own working season between all of these great distractions. The next working season runs March 6 to April 24 — the time between Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest. Yes, we do have a few distractions along the way, like French Quarter Fest and Easter, but for the most part people have partied a bit too much during Mardi Gras and need to settle in and focus on work until the next big stretch of fun, which happens to be eight days this year with the 50th anniversary of Jazz Fest.
So, you have six days this month to party, then let the work begin.
Happy Working Season. Let’s get something done.
PS: Happy birthday this month Malayne and Jake. May your deployment end soon and we look forward to seeing you back in the United States soon. Thank you for your service.
