How are you using the holiday time?
The holidays are a great time to spend with family and relax. However, if you are someone who seeks to set themselves apart, the holidays can be a great time to do just that. Will you spend the next month on your butt or on your feet? In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some tips on how you can go against the grain and set yourself up for a dominating 2024. Enjoy.
- Schedule. Be intentional with how you spend your time every day. Are you holding yourself to your exercise goals? What about your daily non-negotiables? Set (and hold) appointments with yourself.
- Be present. When you do spend time with family, spend time with your family. Be there both physically and emotionally. Ask questions to be curious and learn about those you love.
- Non-negotiables. Are you keeping them? The holidays are a great time to make some changes (if necessary), but you must stick to them and not let yourself slide (too much). Abbreviated versions of your non-negotiables during the holidays are okay, but keep the routines in place as best you can.
- Disciplines. Are you setting disciplines for yourself during the holidays? During times of social drinking with family, make sure to drink responsibly and also mix in a water or two.
- Work. If you are working, work. Similar to the bullet point above regarding being present with your family, the same applies with your work. Always remember the power of one more and make sure you stay focused on what you have to get done.
- Heart. Are you expanding your service heart? The holidays are a great time to donate the three T’s (Time, Talent, and Treasure) to a worthy cause you are passionate about.
