Last quarter of the year…

It’s Q4 – the last quarter of the year!

We’re already a few weeks into October(!), well into Autumn, the clocks will change at the end of the month…

Managing your time

My children both have their birthdays in October (this year they’re turning 15 and 13 – where did those years go?!) and it has always seemed to me that once their birthdays are over (followed shortly by Halloween), Christmas and the end of the year are soon upon us!

In fact, for a few weeks I’ve been noticing the arrival of mince pies, advent calendars and ‘Santa, please stop here!’ signs in the shops!

What are your plans for this last quarter of the year?

How has 2017 been for you thus far?

Did you set goals for the year back in January? If so, how are you doing compared to where you wanted to be at this time?

If you’re on track – well done! Keep it up!

If there’s a gap between where you are and where you wanted to be…

How will you reach your goals for 2017?

– without driving yourself into the ground and to distraction?

Since the start of September I’ve been hearing a lot of people saying how terribly busy they are. Now that we’re into October, I’m hearing a lot of people say that they’re unwell… If that sounds familiar, are you making sure that you are taking care of yourself and avoiding crashing and burning?

Rather than burning yourself into a frazzle trying to do everything, what do you need to focus on between now and Christmas?

(other than getting ready for the holiday season and all that entails!)

Stop, start, continue

What could you stop doing, right now, to help you focus on what’s important for you and your goals?

What do you want to start doing – today – to be happy with where you get to by the end of 2017?

What is going well and you’d like to continue, or do more of?

What will you focus on for this last quarter of the year?

What about you? Are you on track? Do you need to refocus?
