The holidays may be merry and bright, but they can also be a distraction.
They are a disruption from our normal workflow and if they are not managed appropriately, can be a huge loss in productivity, production, momentum, and income.
Are you guarding your time more closely during this holiday season?
There will be no shortage of parties, events, and get-togethers seeking our time.
There will be no shortage of delightfully delicious desserts and high-calorie foods available for consumption.
Many around us will put on the “Holiday Coast” and cruise into the New Year. This sounds nice. It may even be somewhat relaxing.
But what is the cost of stopping short now? What goals are still on the table?
There is plenty of time left to maximize your minutes and do something big. What are you going to do with the rest of 2021?
The month of December is generally one of the least productive months of the year. Challenge yourself to make it your most productive month of the year.
Here are three ways to make December your most productive month of the year:
(1) Don’t be a Scrooge: Despite the distraction, the Holidays are a nice time to connect with friends and family. Allow the holiday joy to flow through you and use some of the excitement to create something new. Get creative!
(2) Get Outside: Even if it is cold, get outside. The sun is a magical source of energy and provides much-needed Vitamin D. Breathe some fresh air for 30 minutes at least once every day.
(3) Put Structure Around Holiday Activities: When you fail to plan, you plan to fail. This is never more true than times where indulgence is plentiful. Control the variables and choose to put parameters on your indulgence.
Don’t coast into 2022 – Sprint into the New Year.
