It’s December and Christmas is officially on its way! We hope you enjoyed your first advent calendar chocolate this morning.
Here at Cegos we have produced our very own advent calendar for the run up to Christmas. Ours is a little different though, no chocolate or make-up products here. Instead ours encourages you to have a couple of minutes ‘me time’ to reflect and get ready to take 2017 with a bang.
Watch out for a question every working day from now until Christmas Eve. We’d love to hear some of your thoughts, tweet us, make a comment or drop us a line.
Cegos Advent Calendar
Go over your answers from the last 3 weeks, pat yourself on the back and have a fabulous Christmas.
So, did you do the tasks you set yourself yesterday? If not, then get them done today. If you did them already then choose some more…
Taking your goals from yesterday write a short sentence about each describing what you are going to do achieve that goal. Pick one action against each goal that you can take today.
Time to start to think about 2017. Where do you want to be this time next year? How will you know you’ve got there?
What achievements are you most proud of this year?
Help someone today – maybe a stranger or a colleague or a friend or a family member but add value to them in some small (or big) way.
Are you in control of your life – are you running around trying to get everything done or are you choosing the important items to focus on? How can you regain control, purpose and poise? Clue: Look back over your answers for the last 2 weeks.
Call a customer, a friend and a family member that you have been meaning to get in touch with but haven’t found time. No texting or messaging – an actual phone call.”
Create a plan to meet your key stakeholders to review 2016 and to start a discussion on what they need from you and what you need from them in 2017.
List your stakeholders and prioritise them in terms of their interest in what you do and their influence over your success.
Looking back over the last week, month, or year, who has helped and supported you? Take time today to thank them.
How well do you understand your business/products? What part of the business do you need more information on?
Looking back at yesterday’s answer – what 3 steps can you take to move forward on the different way of working – when will you take those first 3 steps?
If you were starting this year again what would you do differently?
What did you set out to do in 2016 and haven’t done yet? What can you do to move towards this goal in the remainder of the year?
What is the most valuable piece of feedback you’ve been given this year?
With busy work and home lives, it’s great to take a step back now and then to reflect. With this in mind, what achievements are you most proud of this year?
We hope you’ve enjoyed our festive Me Time Advent Calendar and are ready to make 2017 great! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Cegos UK.
