It’s that time of the year again… The closing of one door and the opening of a better one – the perfect time to reflect and start fresh! Even if you feel stressed right now, there is a lot to be grateful for. There’s also plenty that can be done to finish the year on a high note and carry you flawlessly into the new year.
Here are 3 tips for finishing the year strong:
You have worked hard to get where you are. You’ve put the extra effort in, learned from mistakes, and succeeded when others failed – all great things that you should be proud of. Take some time to reflect on your experiences, the good and bad. What did you learn? What would you have done differently? Who has been there for you? Learn from these experiences. You have the power to change anything for the better going into the new year and recognize anyone who has helped you along the way. Gratitude allows you to reflect on personal growth, and reviewing all that you’ve achieved will help you feel less stressed about what you have left to accomplish.
#2 Get Ahead
Once you finish your tasks for the year, planning ahead will help you transition seamlessly. What are your goals for the next year? How do you want yourself or your business to grow? How are you going to make it happen? For instance, if you’re looking to grow your business, developing your human capital is a great place to start. You could look to provide supplemental training for current staff or consider hiring additional quality employees to fill gaps in your team. Committing to your goals by understanding how you will attain them is key to making them happen in the new year. Don’t forget to write them down! As you take some time to rest and recover, you’ll want to know where and how to start once you get back to work.
#3 Rest and Recovery
Not only is this the time of the year to be joyous and celebrate achievements, but it’s also time for a little R and R. Treat yourself to a few days off this holiday season. Don’t feel guilty. Taking time to rest can make you more productive, motivated, and clear-headed for when you return to work. As you use some time off, consider doing things that keep you busy and not worried about work. Spend time doing things you love and with the people you love! As great as it is to relax in your spare time, another option is to use this free time to get ahead and budget your workload. If you’re comfortable with it, doing some work during your break might help you feel less pressure as you head into the new year.
