The beginning of the year, in fact, the entire first quarter is my favorite time of year. We’re making plans, building out vision and focusing on how we’ll execute on the strategy.
I find this time of year to be invigorating but also overwhelming. The beginning months of the fiscal year means the possibilities are endless. The sky is the limit and I’m always tempted to try and make it bigger this year than last year.
And by February, I’m swimming in the busyness of all of that. Why?
Because no matter what, if you’re not hyper focused on a couple of big initiatives, you’ll get swept away by all the other busy work.
