10 Things To Accomplish Before The New Year

10 Things To Accomplish Before The New Year

And that’s a wrap on 2018…well, almost! It’s always nice to start a new year with a clean slate — not to mention clean skin! — so here are 10 things we’ll be doing before ringing in 2019 with a bang.

Join us, or use these ideas as inspiration when creating your own list of to-dos to accomplish before the clock strikes midnight.

  1. Toss all expired makeup, sunscreen and skincare. If a product is past its prime, it’s time to replace it.
  2. Take down and store your holiday decorations. Once the New Year rolls around, they’re the last thing you’ll want to see.
  3. Send thank-you notes to people who gave you holiday gifts. There’s no time like the present to express appreciation for your presents.
  4. Exfoliate your face and body. Out with the old (dead skin cells) and in with the new (younger, vibrant cells)!
  5. Treat yourself to a pedicure. Starting the New Year on the right foot is easier when your toes are in tip-top shape.
  6. Go through all your clothes and shoes and donate anything you haven’t worn in the past year. If it’s been that long since you’ve worn something, you’re not going to miss it.
  7. Take a look at your skin and assess its current state. Could you use more hydration? Are you seeing signs of aging? Now is the time to add a new product to your routine and make sure you are fully stocked on all the products you need.
  8. Write down your personal and professional goals for the year, both big and small. Cross them off as you achieve them, add more as the year goes on, then look back at the list at the end 2019 — you’ll be impressed by all you’ve accomplished!
  9. Clean out your email inbox, delete unneeded files on your computer and remove apps from your phone that you no longer use. The more clutter you eliminate, the easier your tech will be to navigate.
  10. Take a restorative yoga or meditation class, or get a massage, to help you de-stress from the holiday chaos. It helps to start the year in a Zen-like state — or somewhere close to it!

One Take and That’s  Almost a Wrap!

One Take and That’s Almost a Wrap!

One Take and That’s Almost a Wrap…

Why not look at all the things you’ve accomplished this year instead of all the things you didn’t get done. What a brilliant concept!
Celebrating your success is a confidence-building practice to create positive results for the future. Appreciate even your failures because mistakes are an important part of our journey. Embrace the courage it took to take action and learn from the outcome. 

As we wrap up 2017 and catapult quickly into 2018, let’s take  time to reopen the book on the year in review and celebrate all the things we accomplished over the year. List the goals you achieved, the smiles you planted, and the glitter you left behind and don’t overlook the subtle things.

Make it fun: Invite a friend or business partner to participate and celebrate all you both have gotten done this year. Pop some popcorn, pour a glass of wine or bubbly, and make it a celebration!

Places to remind you of your achievements:

  1.  Look at your past appointment calendar for the year
  2.  New products and services you launched
  3.  Social media campaigns launched
  4.  Marketing campaigns
  5.  New customers and business partners
  6.  Increased sales
  7.  Book outline done
  8.  Blog posts or newsletters published
  9.  Events you hosted
  10. Vision board
  11. Credit card statements or checkbook.

Your spending will remind you of ways you invested in yourself and your business:

  • Classes taken
  • Trips with family to create memories
  • Books read
  • New technology you implemented to improve your business
  • Client lunches and client appreciation gifts
  •  Networking events to grow your visibility
  • 1-1 coffee dates to nurture your key business relationships
  • Gym membership, yoga lessons and other ways you stay healthy
  • The time you spent with family and friends
  • New things skills you learned or talents developed

Studies show that we women tend to downplay our achievements! Don’t overlook the things that have been easy. Play up all the things you did this year for yourself and for others. Pat yourself on the back for everything you’ve accomplished! I think you will discover it’s been a better year than you remembered. Take that discovery into your business planning and 2018 will also be a year of profound growth and accomplishments. Be smart with your time, commit to your priorities, invest in you and your goals, and eliminate distractions.  Make sure on New Year’s Eve when you say, “It’s a Wrap” on 2017 that you are celebrating everything good and everything positive with a thankful and grateful heart for a year well done and a new and improved you!
