Summer has hardly settled into Autumn and already I’m starting to see Holiday advertisements long before I’m ready to even think about shopping, cooking, entertaining and decorating. Maybe it’s just me, but everything seems rushed and the weeks just seem to fly by.
I still have a lot to accomplish before year end and maybe you do too. And no matter how much you plan and organize, you are still adding to your to-do-list.
I don’t know about you but with a little over than 3 months left in 2010, I have many miles to go before I sleep!
So, who else wants to end 2010 with a bang?
I sure do.
And, here are some tips to give you a head start to end 2010 with a bang:
- Review your goals – Review the things you want to accomplish and If necessary, make adjustments to the goals you sent at the beginning on the year. Focus only on those goals that you can realistically achieve in the next fifty- three days.
- Create an action plan – An action plan is not your to do list! An action plan clearly details each step you will take to reach your goal. For example, you may want to finish your book before the end of year. So your plan would be to write 1-2 pages a day for an hour every day.
- Stay committed – If you are not committed to following your plan, you can easily be derailed by busy-ness, procrastination and intrusions.
- Get some rest – It’s difficult to follow your plan when you are overtired and frustrated. Don’t burn the candle at both ends or you will surely burnout and not have the energy to follow through.
- Organize – Clutter can easily cause you to be distracted and overwhelmed. Make sure your workspace is free of clutter so that you remain focused and clear.
As you approach the end of the year, keep in mind that it’s not too late to accomplish what you set out to do in January. Revise, review and reinvent how you want the last few months of the year to look. I’ll be doing the same and I would love for you to connect with me to share your progress.
