Seven ways to start next year with an advantage 99% of people won’t have

Ready for the end of the year? None of us really are, but let’s see how we can make the most of it…

1. Note your top 5 lessons from this year.

Few take a moment to assess how their year went.

It needn’t be some big fanfare thing. Just reflect for a while on what you learned this last year. What lessons can you bring forward into the next?

Note this down.

Enjoy this brainstorming and reflective process.

What were you grateful for this year?

You’re not Scrooge, are you?

So open up and take a second to see what you love about your situation and life.

2. Create and share content.

Most people drift away from creating things, and the limelight, towards the end of the year.

That’s fine for many.

But certainly, if your financial success relies on attention, you will stand to gain by remaining on people’s radars through the slower period in the year.

People are indoors, and many are still glued to their screens.

Make videos, record podcasts, and get your writing out there.

Share material (like the article you’re reading) that is relevant and flying on current trends.

Be seen, be heard, and then it won’t be such a grind to gain attention when everyone returns from the land of the dead in the new year.

3. Exercise like you would in a ‘normal’ month.

Most people allow their exercise schedule to drop off in December. Several variables are at play, particularly in cold climates, for why this is.

Also, Christmas and feeling burned out towards the end of a long year.

But here’s the trouble with that. If we feel burned out, the last thing we want to do is eat more junk and exercise less.

Maintaining some decent daily exercise will boost your mental health, stave off the love handles, and set you up for a significant advantage at the start…
