End This Year Delightedly: Ways to Stay Motivated In 2016
We’ve got only few days left until the end of the year and you can probably feel it’d be pretty easy to sit back, let things slow down, and expel the most.
You could take a breath, make a plan, and finish the year off STRONG.
Here are some ways to end this year pretty so you can start off next year with clear eyes and a clean slate. Enjoy!
1.Define exactly what you want to finish by the end of the year
Every quarter we create a list of projects we want to accomplish. We keep these in Trello so we can look at them visually and move them from “ideas” to “in process” and finally to be “completed.” This list is very clear indicator of exactly which projects we’ve committed to but haven’t finished yet. So as the end of the year approaches, we know exactly what work is left to do. We mainly focus on Digital Marketing and SEO related content.
Do you know what work you’d like to finish by the end of the year? Are you crystal clear about it? You don’t have to wait to make a list at the beginning of next quarter; you can make your list right now! Exactly which projects do you want to finish by the end of the year? Get crystal clear about it and make a plan!
2.Complete the end of the review process
We’ve designed a process to help you review this past year so you can make a truly ass kicking plan for next year. We’ve also planned a detailed list about it to walk you through it. Always digitalize your plan for further success.
3.Clean and organize your computer files
Organizing anything lying around on the desktop and in the download folder and archiving files for work. The basic essence of this is to start the next year with a totally clean computer slate; you’ve got the freedom to make any changes to your workflow or how you organize files, etc.
The tension here is cleaning as much as you can without leaving you without a file when you need it (because you archived it on an external hard drive somewhere).This one task alone can knock a bunch of creative ideas to flying out.
4.Take a goal for next year and start making progress on it right now
Why not get a head start now on something you care about for next year? What’s stopping you from starting right now on a goal for next year? One thing to think about here is maybe you can make this one a personal goal, something you want to do particularly for yourself.
5.Take on a project that requires focus
At the end of the year things slow down, people bug you less, there are less meetings, less interruptions. This is a perfect time to take on a project that requires focus; something that needs long stretches of uninterrupted attention.
6.Clean and organize your work space
It’s an energetic environment, but it can “grow weeds” as track puts it, feeling too disorganised and cluttered. Cleaning out the work space is like taking back ownership.
7.Clear your schedule with some simple hacks
These days are filled with lots of requirements and expectations, so find some simple hacks around them. For example, shop online instead of spending time driving to, searching within and waiting in line at a store.
Another idea is being clear with your family that you’re working on your projects up until last date. It’s easier to do this when you’ve got a clear goal set ( creating a big project to launch in January, or being crystal clear about what you want to accomplish by the end of the year).
Come on let’s make it Possible!
You’ll only get to end this year once… how are you going to make it count? We’re rooting for you because we know as well as you do: your business, income and freedom rely on your ability to execute projects like these.
