Getting Back on Track Post-Holidays

With the trees and menorahs put away, and the Happy New Year greetings capturing our energy and interest, the holiday hangover can be real!
So, how do you get back on track after the holidays, or any break? Please consider these four steps to regaining focus, purpose and enthusiasm for what you are going to accomplish:
  1. Make a list of all your previous accomplishments and a list of things for which you are grateful
  2. Clean/clear out your space – whether that be physical or electronic – make that a priority, as a clean space is a productive space
  3. Make a list of goals and stretch goals that are specific and measurable with time frames tied to the accomplishments without the words more, better, less, etc, as this is about being accountable to success not just subjective hopes
  4. Calendar activities that will get you to results and plan time for reflection and unexpected happenings, and follow your calendar as a guide to empower and not a list to restrict. Build in rewards for your accomplishments in order to feel and see the success.
When you are distracted or down, go back to the lists and calendar and keep moving forward based on previous wins as you plan for continued growth!
