We are approaching the end of 2020 – a year that been very challenging and disruptive for many.
None of us really know what next year has in store for us, only that we hope and pray that it returns to the world that we know and recognise.
This time of the year (and especially this year) is a time to recharge, to reflect and to refocus.
Recharge our batteries
Many of us are running on empty. We need to take this ‘down’ time to recharge the mind and the body. You are the most important person in your business – your business needs you to be firing on all cylinders.
You owe it to yourself to stop, take a break, relax and recharge. This way you will come back into 2021 the best you can be.
Reflect on this year
What has happened, what have we learned, how have we reacted? You will be surprised how resilient, adaptable and focused you have been, without even knowing it.
You can build on your learnings. What will you do differently in 2021 based on what you learnt this year?
It is only when you look back you realise how far you have come. Celebrate your achievements.
Refocus for next year
Use this time to prepare yourself and your business for next year. What are you going to do to make a difference?
Think about where you want to be this time next year. Why not write your 2021 review now by imagining you are at Dec 2021? Write down what you have achieved in the last twelve months. When you do this you have just written your vision plan for 2021!
Create a plan, and make sure you work that plan. Not sure how to do this? We are running some 90 day planning sessions to provide you with all the tools to be able to do this.
Finally, a question I would like you to think about and answer. Ask yourself:
How willing am I to be focused, and how focused am I willing to be?
