I find that one of the hardest things to do during the Holiday Season is to stay focused on my business for the 4th quarter.
I get distracted by so many things and can lose track of my priorities.
When the Holiday Season arrives in early November time seems to speed up. I start thinking about family gatherings, time with friends and preparing gifts and cards. That's when I struggle to remember my top business priorities that must get done before the end of the year. It’s true that the holidays require or even demand a lot of our time and attention and they cannot be ignored.
Both your family and your business need your time and attention.
If you stop NOW and schedule time for the tasks and activities required to have things go smoothly, not only could you have peace of mind, you could also have a joyous Holiday Season and a strong 4th quarter in your business.
The people around you could also get distracted. It’s really quite normal. If you plan accordingly you can maintain a good level of productivity during this time.
If you find yourself swept away with the coming season, don't worry, it happens to all of us. Pause, think for a minute and get back on track with your most important work.
