This year is coming to a close.
December is a great month for reflection, and a time to start planning for the year ahead.
Many people take the time between Thanksgiving and New Year as a “break” from their business or other life commitments. If this is a time you have preplanned to take a vacation and you are ready to take 2016 by storm – then more power to you!
However, if you are in the other camp. One of the vast percentage of people that take this time off without really thinking about it, do me a favor…
Stop and think about it.
December is the perfect time to focus on completion. (Really, the year is completing whether we are ready for it or not – so we might as well get ready!)
So, you will notice “completion” and “planning” as themes as we close out the year.
This week, I want you to take some time to reflect, acknowledge, and celebrate your accomplishments.
Get your pen and paper, snuggle up with a gingerbread latte, and really think about it.
Write down all the things you have accomplished this year.
List out every single tiny and big thing that comes to mind.
All of it.
Now that you have your list, take a moment to reflect on your accomplishments (man, you are awesome!), acknowledge what you’ve done and learned, and celebrate your wins.
Really take in how far you’ve come and what you’ve been able to make happen.
And, this is probably the most important part (and something most of us miss).
Are you ready for it?
Celebrate your accomplishments.
And I mean more than just saying “Yay me” and moving on.
Take the time and plan something you can do (either by yourself or with your loved ones) to celebrate how much you have accomplished this year. It will help you get closure on those projects so you can plan the next steps in your life and business.
Don’t forget to share your top achievement(s) in the comments section so we can all celebrate with you!
Until then…stay passionate!
P.S. Don’t get hung up on what you haven’t accomplished yet this year – we will focus on that topic next week! Right now, I only want you to focus on what you did complete (and your overall rock star status).
Until then… stay passionate!
