Welcome to December!
It is almost time to put 2018 in the books and start a new year!
Have you done a review of 2018?
We always do a review for our business and personal life and I highly recommend taking a day or two to evaluate how this year went for you.
I tend to go back through my online calendar and my daily planner.
What were some of the big items that got accomplished or occurred. How did it go? What were the lessons learned or what would you have done differently if anything?
Also, I recommend doing this exercise now verses the last week of the year.
The reason for doing this early December is so you can start putting a plan in place for the next year verses doing all the planning in January.
Those last weeks of December can be a good time to just be, enjoy loved ones and decompress.
This year was a big year personally for Tony and I.
We had our second baby and if you know my personal story, I had a very tough labor with our first child. When preparing for our daughter’s birth I did a ton of therapy around the PTSD I have from our son’s birth. I also walked the labor and delivery halls at the hospital to process the emotions I knew I would have.
These were the best things I could have done to prepare for her birth.
I also hired a doula for her birth, I recommend all women consider hiring a doula. She was there for me and only me, to make sure I stayed focused and was cared for at all times. She even came and visited me after I had the baby to make sure I was ok. (They also offer postpartum help!)
Then we finally closed the chapter on purchasing a new home!
We bit off more than we realized with hiring a very unorganized builder. It took over double the time it should have but we are finally proud home owners!
I could share more but I want to encourage you to take a moment to review your life.
Dive deep into personal, professional, finances, health, relationships, etc.
Darren Hardy has an amazing resource called Living Your Best Year Ever to help you work through each area.
In preparing for 2019 health goals, consider joining our Transformation Challenge. We run this challenge two times per year and the next one starts January 14th! I will have information on how to sign up next week. We will have early bird pricing in December and full price in January.
