Christmas Time (Is Here Again)
It’s coming to that wonderful time of year, where all things are slowing down and we’re getting ready for family & relaxation time. I want you to enjoy it, as I will.
This is a great time to reflect and set goals for the New Year that, this time, you will actually follow through with. Once January comes around, life is in full swing again and the opportunities for a breather are fewer and far between.
Create time in your diary - yes, actually write it in - to spend 30 minutes reflecting on the year and what you will, through this planning, achieve in 2017. If it was 31 December 2017 and you were sitting around on your favourite chair reflecting on the year which turns out was one of your best ever - what would you be smiling about?
Here are some points to get you started:
- Trips you took
- Advancements in your career
- Special events shared with loved ones
- Renovations to your home
- Health and fitness achievements
- Personal accomplishments
- Improvements in your financial position
- Better relationships with those in your life who matter most than you had at the start of the year
If those around you know what you wish to achieve, more often than not they’ll be there to help you do it. Depending on your position in your company, this may be a good time to schedule a chat with your manager and include them in on your plan & goals.
If you would like more wisdom and a great read over Christmas, my book delves into planning for your career, family and love life. It’s available for purchase through my website. Order soon, so it arrives in time should you wish to give it as a gift.
And finally, for fans of The Beatles like me or those that enjoy the slight torture that comes with Christmas jingles, check out the Christmas track below.
Here’s to a brilliant life!
