How the heck is it November already?
Maybe I’m the only one, but I feel like 2021 has just flown by. Not always in a good way, but I can’t believe we are here.
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. There is just a certain smell in the air that puts a smile on my face every time. Not to mention all of the good things that happen in the fall season. I’m talking about football, soup season, new latte options and weekends with friends.
However, for most entrepreneurs fall also brings a bit of panic which can lead to a stress cycle.
“Will I make my end of year revenue goal?”
“How will my business survive the holiday season?”
“When will I make up the time off for myself and my employees.”
“There is so much riding on holiday sales – I hope it works!”
For me, this also brings a motivational slump. Balancing home life and work life is not easy but for some reason during the holiday season it feels even harder! So I’m writing this today as encouragement for you, but also for me. We’ve got this!! We have been here before and this year is no different. It’s the first of November and the PERFECT time to map out the rest of the year. Could you get the ball rolling on setting holiday party dates? How can you plan ahead on projects so they don’t all pile up at the end of the year.
And the biggest question of all….
What do you need to let go of in this season?
One of the most powerful exercises I do during this time of year is to make a list of what I HAVE accomplished so far this year! It is so freeing to be able to put to paper what has gone right and spend a little time celebrating!!
I’ve included a blank version of this so you can do it for yourself, but in case you were wondering, here is mine:
I would LOVE to know one (or all) of your accomplishments. Hit reply and let me know!
