Sometimes when we look back we feel that we could have done more or that we could have done things better.
But the past is the past and dwelling on what could have, should have or would have happened will stop you moving forward.
Here in the UK the beginning of September heralds the start of the longest stretch of the year without an official public holiday. It’s a straight run through to – Christmas. (Sorry about that, I’ll try not to mention that again.)
So you have the opportunity to build up a head of steam and to look ahead, your sights fixed firmly on what you want to get done before the end of the year. This not going to be, could’ve, should’ve, would’ve: It’s a time when you set out your targets and objectives and get down to work.
If you’ve not had a chance to think about that, take some time this week to do so.
Think about a financial target. As I’ve said before one of the three key elements of business is the numbers and setting a target is key to driving you and your business.
Second, think about 3 objectives you want to reach before the end of December. Winning a particular new customer; giving a talk; finishing that book, (or at least starting it) or perhaps re-vamping the look and feel of your website. Something that you’ve been meaning to do but it just kept slipping down your list of ‘To Do’s’.
The result from doing what I’m proposing? It will re-invigorate your business and importantly you.
It will also mean that you will enter the New Year with a pipeline of business and a momentum to see you through the first part of the year.
I’d love to hear what you’re working towards and looking to achieve before the end of the year.
