How to Close out the Year Strong…and Welcome the New One

Career Advice

The end of the year is significant in so many ways. A time for goodbyes as well as hellos: to a fresh start and a new beginning. If you’re looking for some closure in 2017 so you can fully welcome the good vibes of 2018, here are some great tips.

  1. Clean up your office before you leave for the holidays–that includes your desktop. That way you’ll get a fresh start in the new year.
  2. Flip through your agenda for the past year and reflect on your achievements and the obstacles you overcame.
  3. Purchase a new agenda that’s ready to go for the new year.
  4. Revisit your goals for the past year. Which ones did you meet? Which ones fell to the wayside? Did you make any progress? Which ones do you want to re-visit in the new year?
  5. Make one small change right now. Maybe it’s just a new plant on your desk or a new desktop background but the difference can signify a fresh beginning when you return to the office.
