2023 is coming up quickly! Whether you’re a small business owner or not, year-end is a critical time to take stock of the year and plan ahead for the next.
We’ve compiled 5 things you should do to wrap up the year and enter 2023 feeling confident and prepared!
1) Reflect on the past year.
Look back on the goals you set at the beginning of the year. Did you meet them? If not, what were some of the obstacles in your way? Is there anything you can do differently in the following year to help you achieve your goals?
Don’t forget: Reflecting on opportunities for improvement is important, but so is celebrating your successes!
2) Plan out your goals for the year ahead.
Start the year off on a high note by having a clear sense of what you would like to accomplish, and what you need to accomplish those goals.
Your goals could be as simple as striving to read more books, find an organization with which to volunteer or set a solid Sunday night routine. Or, they could be more reflective in nature, like overcoming imposter syndrome or improving your mental wellbeing.
We’ve also compiled goal-setting tips for your business, if you have one!
3) Review your finances.
Staying on top of your finances is important year-round, but the end of the year is the perfect time to review them in detail.
First of all, gather any financial statements and information like credit reports, and analyze them carefully. Make a plan to pay off your debts and how you would like to save for the future. Organize your paper and electronic files, including records and receipts. If you run a business, make note of all of your deductions to prepare for tax time.
4) Declutter your spaces.
Take a cue from Marie Kondo and remove items from your life that don’t bring you joy!
This process can include tasks like donating clothing you never wear, purging those half-finished projects laying around the house and tackling your email inbox. You can also engage in some self-reflection to remove negative thought patterns in your mental space.
