It’s September and we have about 100 days left in 2018. We’ve written goals and resolutions. Some of us are farther along than others this year. But the year isn’t over yet and 100 days can be plenty of time to finish your year strong.
Here are some tips to help you finish 2018 strong:
Review – take the time and review what you wanted to accomplish in 2018. Log your successes first and then write down what you still want to get done. Look at what’s worked and what hasn’t.
Plan – decide which are the things you are most likely to be able to complete in the next 3 1/2 months. Don’t forget down time for holidays and vacations as you plan. Write down the steps required to get it done. Be creative and don’t be afraid to try something different. Finishing strong will take a plan and maybe changing your habits and how you’ve been doing things.
Action – hard part – the actual work required to complete the goal. What steps, action and number of days it will take to meet the goal. Stop procrastinating, action is required. Do something every day! Be proactive.
Schedule – create the time required to meet the goals. Set aside the resources (time, money, etc.) so that you can complete your plan of action. Use your phone calendars to help.
Be Accountable – if you take the time to create a 3 month plan, set up the actions required – be accountable – plain and simple.
And finally – take care of yourself. It’s hard to finish strong if your body is weak. Eat well, get enough sleep and exercise. And have fun.
