My favorite season is here – and even without the snow I used to experience when living in Toronto – I LOVE the excitement that leads up to Christmas, the festivities, and then the New Year – where we all get our butts in gear and plan a successful start to the new year.
I now have 25 days of Christmas movies – which we watch together as a family – and last night we even got a dose of the Grinch and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
The important things about this season are multi-faceted, especially because you have to divide your attention between business, family and friends – and it becomes a lot to juggle.
Here is some advice I have for you this year:
1. If you are on a budget this year – buy only what you need for friends, family and yourself. Have a list – go out – and buy just that. The sales will be tempting, slashed prices will call out to you, and deals with delight and taunt you to take advantage of them – but hold strong, and don’t overspend.
2. Don’t forget about your goals from this year. Now is not the time to say “I’ll just pick them up in the new year” and spend the next month partying with friends. This is the time to balance your time effectively. Yes family and friends will want more of you – and yes they are important – but you don’t want to begin next year from a standing start.
Get momentum – even if it is small – so that come January 1st, instead of getting over that hangover, you can spend the day ignoring football and get yourself completely ready to make 2011 YOUR BEST YEAR EVER.
3. Your best way to keep your dreams going is to get extremely organized.
First, Decide what are you going to focus on next year.
If you need help on the path – Get a copy of my ebook – 31 Days to Millionaire Marketing Miracles
And read through the steps – and get in place what you are going to do, and if possible, buy a domain name to get it started and get the fundamentals in place for a product you can create and sell.
Second, buy a 2011 calendar and mark targets on it.
ie. Have landing page up for listbuilding.
Start a blog and do some posting to it – driving traffic to your landing page
Create 10 autoresponders
Create free gift for opt-in
Create download page for free gift
The book will help you with what needs to be done, and you can decide when.
That way when 2011 begins, you will be ahead of the rest of those who thought this was the perfect time to rest, relax, and shove their dreams under the carpet (for the sake of the season), and are now struggling to get back up to the starting gate, get their thoughts organized, and begin.
Habits are easy to break, and harder to make.
Get your habits started now – so that 2011 is YOUR YEAR.
It is your time to shine!
See you on the other side.
