December is now upon us, and as everyone is in the midst of work, family and holiday season obligations, it is important to take some time this month to get into “PRO” mode in preparation for 2023. What is PRO mode, you ask? Well:
P is for Planning – December is a great time to take a look back at your planning strategies for this year and make some tweaks to get yourself ready for 2023! Do you typically put off work projects, travel plans or other things on your “to do” list until the very last minute, no doubt causing you stress and anxiety? Assess why this is the case and think about some ways that you might be able to improve your “tackling that list” timing!
R is for Reflecting – December is also a great time to begin reflecting upon the current year: What were your wins or significant accomplishments? What were your challenges? Who were the people this year whom were your greatest allies, and whom made the biggest impact on you? What are your goals for 2023?
O is for Organizing – Remember those goals for 2023 that’s now on your radar? December is a great time to start organizing to set yourself up for achieving those goals! Maybe you get yourself a new planner and some colorful pens for writing down your next steps? Or, maybe you begin decluttering your home or office space in preparation for the new year and a new outlook?!
As you prepare for 2023, don’t forget to also take the time to reach out to those in your circle and ask them how they plan to get into “PRO” mode for 2023? I wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season, and all the best for the coming year!
