What's your vision for ending the year with, in a really strong & powerful way, that fulfills you and makes you really satisfied with 2019? Where do you want to end up at home?Where do you want to end up at work?
December's really full with all the social events and the family things at the end of the year, trying to get all the work done, so that you can relax for a few days during the break. What do you have in place to achieve that? How are you going to manage all the competing priorities? Where are you at with "year end"? Where do you want to end up?
I thought I'd share some ideas that will support you in ending the year exactly as you wanted.
Choose what's going to make the biggest difference for you, and focus on that.
Like they say in the airplane, "before you try to help somebody else, get your own gas mask on". Once you're confident that that's on track, then you'll have space to attend to the other people in your life and the other things in your work that you really care about.
Manage expectations and repercussions or impact.
If there are people whose expectations you're not going to be fulfilling because you just don't have enough time; if there are people you've said yes to, then now is the time to manage their expectations and say no.
No can be a complete sentence....if you want it to be!
And there's an impact, right? Especially if you've told somebody you're going to do something and then you end up not doing it. There's an impact. So the next thing to do is to work through with them the consequences of you not fulfilling on what you said you would do and find a way that both of you can be satisfied, either with you postponing it or handing it off to somebody else to get it done.
Be at peace with your choices.
Own your choices, and be okay with it. Because in this busy world that we live in, it's very difficult to keep everybody happy and to get everything done that you'd love to get done. So top tip number three, be at peace with your choices.
