While enjoying holiday break, we are often caught up in what we don’t get done. For driven individuals, it’s natural to focus on what’s ahead, not what’s behind. However, appreciation for the past provides valuable perspective that can ground you. This weekend over your favorite beverage, sit and write a list of the top five things you HAVE accomplished this year, including projects undertaken, initiatives completed, relationships formed, training received, and goals accomplished. As you do so, realize how much you have to be proud of and grateful for. You’ll be surprised how much it lifts your spirits and resets your thinking for finishing out the year in stride.
