OK, so it looks like there will be no ‘real’ racing in the UK for a while. But rather than bemoan your fortune use the opportunity to experiment, examine and look for new ideas or opportunities.
Quite a few years ago I got into the mode of taking time off in February. I learnt that it was the lowest yielding month of the year and part or all of it could easily be skipped without too much impact. So I repeat that each year. It’s half term next week, so I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with the kids.
If you have no plans to take a break use your time effectively anyway. Download some spreadsheets, fiddle with data, create and link some spreadsheets to Bet Angel, play around with the Automation tool. Try out greyhounds, experiment in different sports.
Sometimes a break is a great way to refresh your mind and get some new ideas and inspiration. From the depths of winter in February things start to perk up and then it justs get better and better, especially in 2012. So take the opportunity to do something different even it that is taking a break. Plenty to be getting on with this year.
