Often we hear the advice “Finish the year STRONG.” Many of us think this means hustle, try to close some sales before the holidays hit, crush it, etc.
My interpretation of finishing the year strong is to be rested, renewed, restore your energy, so that the next year will be the most impactful year of your life.
Because of boundaries and self-love for myself, I am not checking or responding to emails from December 22, 2018, until January 7, 2019.
I’ll also be taking a break from Social Media during this time. Imagine how long the battery life on my iBinky will last now, lol.
I recommend you do the same in your respective lives. Instead of having fear of missing out (FOMO), take this season and celebrate the joy of missing out (JOMO).
I recognized within myself that when you are an entrepreneur and also work in a full-time role, days are long. It’s been an amazingly productive year for me, and I am thankful that I have the skills and desire to do what I do.
I also (thankfully) realized that I could become burned out if I didn’t take a rock-solid break from work.
2019 is going to be an amazing year for all of us. Let’s enter into next year with renewed energy, vigor, and determination to be our best selves.
Be well, and all the best this holiday season!
