I really like to take a moment at this time of year to think about what I have accomplished (and give myself loads of pats on the back of course), and what I still want to accomplish in my business…….I know it can be hard to set aside some time while you are wildly trying to get as many sales as possible in the last few weeks of the year….. but, give it a try if you want to give your brain a jolt of new ideas. They just might be the ideas that take your business to the next level and your life…….don’t forget about your life. Being your own boss can be a tiresome job (I get tired of talking to myself in front of the fridge) but in order to keep reinventing and reinvigorating yourself, it is important to look forward and backward to see how you can do “your life” better. Make choices and take a stand to make them happen.
1. Make a list of all the awesomeness that happened to you personally and in your business over the year. Did you get a new significant other, have a baby, launch a product, got a product to a celeb, move, buy a house, get some PR, make a huge gi-normous deal, get an investor, make more money, get into the store of your dreams, write a book, hire staff, Trademark or Patent something?
2. Do a victory dance and go out to dinner tonight with your favorite person. (This is one of my favorite things to do)
3. Make a list of all the things you wanted to do/accomplish this year in your business and didn’t get to do (yet). Now put them in order of most important to growing your business to least important.
4. Before December 1st, do the first thing on your list, and by December 13th, do the second thing. Just make this happen no mater what.
5. Make a list of all the personal things you wanted to do but didn’t get a chance to do yet. Put these in order of importance. Do #3 by Sunday.
6. Create a vision board of all the things you have left to do to create your ideal life. I was recently introduced to this cool, and free, online vision board that you can check out which makes it really easy. Or you can go the old fashion route and cut and paste – which is totally fun too.
