thank you 2018

Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us – a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead. David Cameron   

As the sun starts to set on 2018, it’s extremely important to take a moment to reflect on the year. The successful, the not so successful, the lessons, the new people and those who may not currently be in your circles. Teams need this to continue growing, clarity and direction to their strategic direction. 

Here are 3 final tips to help close out the year:  

  1. The Lessons Learned – by neglecting to reflect on the lessons learned in 2018 means you set yourself up to make them all over again. Take in both the challenges and successes, how you dealt with both, and how you can implement ways to ensure your successes are more frequent. 

  2. The People around you – “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. Who are your 5, how do they impact your direction, how often do you let them know how grateful you are that they are in your top 5 and who needs to be in your top 5 to make 2019 a cracking year!                          

  3. Your 2019 direction – getting clear now on what you think a successful 2019 will look like helps shape your planned activity. Waiting for January to do this will mean generally 2 weeks of the year will already have passed and your competitors will have been in front of your ideal clients before you. Set a plan in place to hit the ground running in January.
