It’s 4th Quarter people!
A little less than half of October, November, and December.
That’s all we have left and then its goodbye to 2016.
If you know like I do, you had better be making the most of it.
These last few months of the year are the figurative legs the first 3 months will stand on.
Forget trying to relive the past, it’s time to make the most of what you have right now.
REFLECT + PLAN
Being too comfortable in your position makes you lazy and an easy target.
Tie up loose ends, organize paperwork, reconnect with someone in your network.
Whatever you do, stay involved and do not fall for the ‘end of the year slump.’
It is a trap and you are better than that!
“Being too comfortable in your position makes you lazy and an easy target.”
Here are a few other ways to help:
- Seek Feedback – Don’t rely solely on social media likes to diagnose the health of your business. Dig deep & ask the tough questions needed for real growth.
- Identify Trends – Stay on top of news & updates by reading as much as you can about your industry. Pro tip: Know what other companies that look like you are up to as well.
- Evaluate Wins & Losses – What steps were taken to forge a major win this year? What missteps caused a loss?
Often times we get caught up in the transactional aspect of running a business and we neglect very important self-care that is vital to a thriving company.
Chaos and uncertainty do not have to surround your small business or side hustle just because its the end of the year.
Grab hold of your goals and remind yourself daily where you are and where you are going.
You’ll be thankful you did.
