1. Take a Break All work and no play makes for negative client attraction.
2. Declutter to Get Ready for 2012
Start small. A drawer, a corner of your desk, your closet, your email inbox, etc...
Do a little each day or a few times a week over the holidays (while listening to fun music!).
You'll feel instantly "together" and ready for the New Year.
3. Take Time to Reflect on Your Progress
Make a list. Leave it out. Add to it over the next week or so until January 1st. Keep adding to it. All manner of successes, big and small. You'll remember more and more.
This will help you focus on what worked, the progress you've made and sends out a powerful energetic signal that says "Thanks! I'll have some more of that!"
And it will do wonders for your confidence.
4. Finish Unfinished Business
Your website half done? Your ezine written but not sent? You made some calls but didn't follow up?
No biggie, everyone does it from time to time. Pick one thing that feels unfinished and complete it by January 1st.
Even better, go to Elance.com and you'll find people from all over the world who will happily, eagerily and affordably get it done for you.
(No job is too small or too big.)
And hiring people to help you is an essential skill set you'll want to master as a self-employed wellness pro.
Elance.com is a great place to start doing that.
5. Block Off Some Time to Think
Sometime in the next few weeks, block off time to consciously plan you're next steps.
(I actually hire a coach to spend a day with me do to this, otherwise, it's too easy to spin circles in my mind.)
It doesn't have to be the grand master plan for your life and business.
Start with the year ahead and then work backward, chunking it down to what you'll focus on for the first 30, 60 or 90 days.
If it helps, start with what you don't want.
Then write down the opposite.
If you're at a loss for how to get there, plan to hire a coach or mentor or invest in a program or product that will help you honor your vision.
The trick is to be flexible about how you get "there."
There are 3 spots left in my Rockstars of Wellness program that begins January 27th, 2012 with a Branding Breakthrough Retreat in Saratoga Springs, NY.
We'll kick off the program with 3 days devoted to you and your fellow Rockstars to start the New Year off RIGHT. (No need to worry when you'll make time to focus on YOUR biz or WHAT to do first!)
Now is the time to take a few moments for yourself and fax in your application. (Applications are here for download: http://www.RockstarsofWellness.com)
Go ahead and have fun with the fun plans you have in place.
It will be even MORE fun knowing you have a 2012 plan in place for making your dreams a reality.
