Yup. Its a complete waste of your time to get anxious about the end of the year. It doesn’t accomplish anything on your to do list. It doesn’t make you feel good. It doesn’t even really motivate you in a good way. If your anything like most of the population, becoming anxious provides a parallel drop in your productivity. Use the upcoming end of the year as a handy deadline. Most people don’t work well in crisis, but they do respond well to a deadline (timeline). Use this to your advantage.
If it was May and i asked you what you were doing in the middle of June, you’d calmly say that you had XY and Z planned right? because you are focussed on May, and know that June is coming and its part of the plan. December gets a raw deal that way. its like we skip over from November to January just because we are december-ist and don’t want to look at it.
Your critic will start to flail her arms and announce that armageddon is coming, but there is no need to engage in that. December is a time of reflection and intention, its THE month for you to really focus down on your business and enjoy the idea that a holiday is approaching. Its a great time to really bring to your mind the big WHY that you do your business, to use the endless commercials and family christmas planning to remember that the reason that you are in business for yourself is so that you don’t have to do the christmas graveyard shift, you don’t have to negotiate with the boss or other workers, you don’t have to wonder how you will ever have the time off you need to spend with your people.
