Don’t Give Up on 2022

There are many ways to look at your business after Labor Day. You may be heading into your busy season and stressing about fulfilling upcoming orders. Conversely, your busy season may be over and it’s time for recharging. You may savor the back-to-school energy and view September as a new beginning. Or you might feel disappointed in your year-to-date progress and decide to coast until you can do a big reset on January 1st. You may also be struggling with business in the “new normal” hybrid as you venture out behind the Zoom screen and interact in offices.

Take a deep breath. There are 117 days left in 2022. If you want to do some math, one-third of the year is still ahead of you. You still have plenty of time to accomplish what you need!

Positive Actions for the Remainder of 2022

This week is a good time to review and reset your goals. Figure out what you can realistically accomplish for the remainder of 2022. What will make you feel excited and successful? Perhaps you can:

  • Update your website.
  • Start blogging every week.
  • Learn Facebook advertising.
  • Gather a group of like-minded business owners for weekly Zoom calls.
  • Connect with five people each week on LinkedIn.
  • Take steps to improve your health and fitness.
  • Start a podcast or YouTube channel.
  • Post on TikTok
  • Write a book.
  • Create a new product or service.
  • Clean out your paper or digital files.
  • Complete a DIY project within your home or apartment.

Now is the time to plant your tree

There’s a Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” In other words, you do not have to wait for a new day, week or year to make progress on your goals.

Think for a moment about where you want to be on January 1, 2023. Most likely the challenges you are facing now will not magically disappear! If this is true, there’s no benefit in waiting for the calendar to flip until you take action in your business.
