It’s December! I love this time of year. Yes, I love the holidays. Having an enormous twinkling tree in my living room, pulling out my sparkly dresses (see a theme here?), and making merry with friends and family. But the business coach in me loves this time of year for an entirely different reason; the opportunity to reflect on the past year, think about what I want for the next, and to set the stage for all the good things I desire to flow in. The longer I’m in business, the more this stuff happens year-round, but this time of year feels particularly potent.
I also recognize that this time of year, with its huge expectations of togetherness, general merriness, and setting big hairy goals (oh, and becoming a whole new you come January 1) can feel overwhelming. So today, I’m going to try to make something that might feel hard (starting the new year on a good footing) as aspirational and actionable as possible. And I’m going to start by sharing 3 steps to clearing, organizing, and setting the stage for a fantastic 2020.
