Today is the first day of Autumn. It conjures images of leaves turning orange, yellow, and deep red. We also think of the spicy aroma of freshly baked pumpkin pies, and outings with friends and family to the local pick-your-own apple orchard.
It’s also a reminder that we’re rounding the final curve before heading into the home stretch of 2014. It’s a good idea to think about your plans for the final quarter of the year; it’ll be here in a week.
Your homework today is to begin thinking about your plan for the last quarter of the year. What items are still on your To Do list for 2014 that you’d really like to cross off before the end of the year? Can you break them down into tiny pieces and work on those?
Sometimes projects on our To Do lists are more involved than anticipated so perhaps you won’t be able to cross them off your list by the end of the year. But, making progress on them can still be satisfying and still motivate you to stick with it in the upcoming year.
As you plan, remember to include outings with friends and family, quiet contemplation time, and rest and relaxation.
I know you can do this!
I’m proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
