finish the year stronger

Finish the Year Strong

Can you believe we’re nearing the end of the year already? I don’t know where the time has gone! Would you like to finish the year strong?

When you look back on 2022, what are you going to be most proud of?

Are there still some things that you haven’t quite completed?

Or even started?

Well, it’s never too late – there’s still time…

Everyone says I’ll do it in the New Year but wouldn’t it be nice to tick a few things off your list before the end of December? Instead of using December as a reason to NOT do things, why not use it as a DEADLINE to get stuff done?

My goal for this year is to get my memoir traditionally published. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into attending courses with the NSW Writers Centre and the Australian Society of Authors. I’ve created written pitches and verbal pitches, researched my ideal reader and competitors in the market, I’ve had it professionally edited and changed the title a few times. It hasn’t been an easy journey. All of this has cost me money, time and effort. I’ve already had 4 rejections and been told it’s highly unlikely that a traditional publisher will invest in the memoir of someone who is not famous or has less than 25k followers on social media (if you feel my pain, please follow me lol!)

But the year is not over yet and so I’m having a final focused effort to contact as many publishers as I can in Australia and the UK. I’m working on making myself and my story unique and attractive to publishers. I’m figuring out alternative ways to share the teachings from my story, maybe a self-help book instead of memoir or even an audio book? I’m willing to do live talks and be interviewed on podcasts, whatever it takes – I’m holding on to the dream because I know this personal story may help others.

 

Want to join me in this final sprint to the end of the year? Here are 6 ways to help you finish the year strong:

  1. Imagine it’s 31st December – what do you wish you’d done? Write down what you need to do so you look back on 2022 feeling confident with no regret or disappointment.
  2. Identify what’s holding you back. Is it fear of failure, or lack of resources, or blocked mindset or overwhelm?
  3. Pick one thing. Don’t try and do it all. You will feel much better if you achieve one task instead of multi-tasking and achieve nothing fully.
  4. Choose to focus. Ignore distractions for the next few weeks, get stuff done, then you can enjoy the holiday season more, feeling relaxed and proud of yourself.
  5. What do you need to stop doing? Are you wasting time, money or energy on things that don’t bring a positive return? Write a list and make a promise to yourself to avoid these things for the next few weeks.
  6. Get help. What do you need to achieve your goals? Guidance, a plan, a coach? Are you willing to ask for help, put yourself first, invest in your future, grow and enjoy your life more.

 

And here’s the good news, I am offering lifetime access to my online program which will take you from where you are to where you want to be. It consists of 6 modules and includes over 35 short videos, numerous questionnaires and personal worksheets, personality profiling, goal setting templates, mindset techniques and everything you need to end the year on a high (or plan for 2023).

If you’re not sure if this step-by-step program will work for you, check out the testimonials on my website from past clients, or call me and let’s talk about it. I’m here for you.

Are you aware that your body is affected by what the mind tells it? Your body is constantly receiving messages and signals from your mind

Manage Your Time Like a Pro Time is one thing we never get back. Time is one thing we tend to waste. Lack of time is something most people struggle with. So how do you manage your time like a pro and get stuff done? Here are a few of my handy tips: Organise Yourself I know it sounds simple, but many people find organising themselves so difficult! It can be a big challenge because organisation habits don’t come naturally. At first, it may feel like you are spending extra time trying to get and stay organised, but the payoff is worth it. Here’s a staggering statistic from USA: on average, Americans waste about 2.5 days per year looking for misplaced objects. Don’t be part of that statistic! Find a place for everything and keep everything in its place. This goes for computer files too! Create simple systems at home and work and monitor how much time you save. Batch Similar Tasks Together Batch all your similar tasks together. For example, don’t check your email every time someone pings you. If it’s urgent, go right ahead, but otherwise, set a time block every two hours or so to plow through all your emails at once. This keeps you focused, which is a more efficient way to work. Leave Wiggle Room Between Your Time Blocks Meet buffer-time. No one should have a fully stacked calendar with no time in between for a break. Block out buffer-time on your calendar in between meetings and tasks. Your future self will thank you when your days are more productive, and the hours are less exhausting. Stop Waiting Every once and a while, you’ll inevitably have to wait for something: at the grocery store, in the doctor’s office, in traffic. Instead of actually waiting, or deferring to your phone for entertainment, do something productive with your time. Listen to a podcast you’ve been meaning to try out, read a book on an interesting topic, or write in your journal. Turn waiting time into productive time. Do Less This may sound counterproductive but it’s not. Most of us take on way more than we need to, meaning we take on more than is beneficial to our work/life balance. We can often find ourselves offering to help others or wanting to control more projects than just our own. By doing that, you’re not helping yourself or those around you. In the end, you could wind up letting people down because you overpromise and under-deliver. Make Use of the Pareto Principle Have you ever heard of the Pareto Principle, otherwise known as the 80-20 rule? This principle says that you can get 80% of the work done in 20% of the time. Similarly, 80% of the results come from 20% of the actions. It can be applied to many things in life, so it’s a great concept to apply to your usage of time. Get in the habit of noticing what tasks get the most results. Spend more time on those actions and cut out some of the responsibilities that take up time but don’t produce the outcomes you are looking for. We want to be productive, not busy! Reading these tips and putting them into action are two different things! If you struggle to create and stick to a successful schedule for yourself (and your family) I’m here to help and keep you on track. Reply to this email or call me and let’s get on to it.
