It's almost the end of the year.
You're bound to have a ton of shizzle to do between now and December 31. You feel the pull of the season- it is a little magical, no? All those cookies to be baked, presents to be carefully selected (and wrapped!), gay apparel to be donned.*
And you also feel the pull of hibernation- the nights are darker and longer, the temperatures (in half the world) are colder.
If you've got a product-based business, then you know this is go time! Your fourth quarter is often your biggest, and you're doing the promos and getting the merch out the door.
If you're a service provider, you might have already written off December as a non-month, thinking that if no one else is gonna do biz, then why will you?
Regardless of where you are and what sort of work you do, I invite you to close your year with me in a new and different way.
You see, at this time of year I turn inward (perhaps by design?); I take my time; I move a bit more slowly; I spend a lot more time on my yoga mat and in my journal. This time, for me, is sacred.
- this is my end of year planning journal. but it pretty much always looks like this.
Left to my own devices on New Years Eve, I'll make a collage, do some yoga, meditate, light a candle for my bath and be all tucked in by 10:30 (at the latest!).
And as I pondered how I wanted to close out this year of my business, of the work that sustains me and allows me to do what I love, I figured I would share with you.
So that's what I'm gonna do!
You are cordially invited to join me for the first annual LifeShifted Year in Review.
