What is your plan to finish the 4th quarter with a momentum and set yourself up for success in 2023?

Here are five tips you can implement to reach your goals! 

1. Self-Reflection

Socrates said, “A life unexamined is not worth living.” The end of the year is an optimal time to reassess and reflect. Ask yourself which habits are the most satisfying to you personally? Which habits are supporting your growth and development? What habits are you neglecting right now that need your attention? On 1- 10 scale, how is your health and fitness right now? If it is not at least an 8, why not?

2. Celebrate 

What are you proud of? What have you accomplished? Jim Rohn taught me – “If life is worth living, then live is worth recording.” Writing even 3 minutes a night in a Journal, documenting your success each day is a powerful habit. Reflect on the activities you accomplished on and the role you played to receive the outcome you had. What stood out this past year that you may have not done before? The idea here is to build confidence and instill pride of purpose in your successes.

3. Get That One Thing Done

Most of us have that one project or assignment that they put on their list of goals back in January that you may have neglected to do. Why does this need to get done now? Create a plan of attack on how you’re going to finish it before the holidays make you too busy and we see January 1st on our calendars. 

4. Get Clear

Many times, people feel anxious and stressed when they are overwhelmed. As work responsibilities pile up, the cumulative weight of what must get done, can easily feel too like a heavy load. Part of the reason for that is because we tend to treat every project with equal importance. Write down and list what you need to get done and the order in which you need to do it. Where do you have to say no?

5. Show Gratitude

At some point during 2022, someone went out of their way to lend you a helping hand.  Or maybe you know someone who needs some uplifting. The end of the year is a great time to help others feel good by remembering them and the value they added. Reach out with appreciation to others who showed up when you needed it. Who is that for you?
